Unsure i fear that my friend might commit suicide...

Hi everyone! I really need some advice to take care of a really dangerous situation which involves one of my best friends, and I really think she needs help. I met her when I started middle school, she knew my friends and they introduced me to her and we've become really good friends ever since, and hangout most of the time. Unfortunately, she left our school because she was being bullied, but we are still friends despite all of that. About 5 months ago she started acting differently though and changed her clothing styles. She nows wear chains and a completely black outfit to her school every day ( she's sexy af ), and started making friends with some people I knew which were ''emo''. She always seemed okay and didn't seem to complain, but one day she showed some cuts she had on her arm which seemed pretty bad and after that i've feared she might attempt suicide. One day we were hanging out with some other friends and she told us she started drinking ammonia. I was realy terrified and tried to help her but she seemed normal and said she didn't really care about herself anymore. She was taken to the hospital twice because of that and her parents just seem to blame her instead of actually helping her. I feel really sorry for her and don't know what to do, I didn't want to get involved but I care for her and don't want her to die :(

try finding positivity, and talk to her like you would with a friend, tell her to try and find other ways of coping with stress, and if she needs a shoulder to cry on, that she has you, tell her there are tons of ways to deal with stress such as smoking, watching youtube videos, working out, playing videos games, and so on, ask her to try and play the guitar and show off her feelings by writing a song, hope this helps.

No, not smoking. But that's one thing to do.

But you should just try to reassure her she's loved. Ask her to go out with you (and other friends), whether that's to the cinema, a walk around the park, or just for lunch at your house.

Sometimes this sort of thing is a "phase" and you just need to help them through it. Sometimes it is a serious thing, which they will need a lot more than you think - but at the same time, not very much. Listening to what they have to say, talking to them, making sure all is well, etc.

You need to make sure she knows she is loved. Spend time with her, and if she doesn't want to, text her, and if she doesnt want to get texted, text her. Text her she is loved, she is your best friend, tell her bitter-sweet memories. Perhaps it's just a small period of time scheduled to be filled with depressive feelings. You and your friend will go on!

Not sure this thread is relevant anymore, but I'll respond anyways.
Fact is, it does sound like your friend is attention-seeking. I'm not saying she's not depressed, but the sudden change to goth style, the new friends who are part of a demographic infamous for attention-seeking behaviours and phony suicide ideation, the fact that you saw the cuts (if she really wanted to keep them hidden, she could have), and her openly announcing to a group of people that she drank ammonia..... This sounds like someone who wants everyone to believe she's suicidal, because she doesn't know how else to get the attention and reassurance she needs.
