Lifeline will not keep her from commiting suicide. I hope you will get her to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Most places in California will admit her to psyc for evaluation for a few days if she is suicidal. Calling 911 is first step in that process. They can prescribe medications from there.

I speak with her and have taken steps to prevent any attempts and if something goes wrong she's connected to Lifeline and 911 is automatically called and I am notified immediately! But when I call next I will make a judgment call and take the necessary steps.

I would call 911 and tell them that your mom is a danger to herself.

BTW, what depression meds is she on? They are obviously not working and her doctor needs to know that!

My great niece is 30 and suicidal. She is currently in the hospital. So, i know a little about what you are facing. Can you get her to the ER? If not, I would call 911. Hopefully, you are able to get some help, tonight.

If she is suicidal she needs to go to the ER for evaluation. Let them know it is a serious situation.

When I was a teenager my grandmother had a stroke, then committed suicide after she had recovered some. My grandfather left her for a few minutes to go to the store. When he came back, she was already dead. She could have lived many more years, but the depression took her. I am glad that you are there to help your mother.
