How do I stop him? I tried getting him help talking to him, be he is saying that you will be happy tommorrow and messaging things to his girlfriend that he will do it today. He is 4 years older than me, he thinks no one loves him but that simply isn't true.

I have no idea what to say to him? I will keep an eye on him all night but I how do I help him. he's refusing to seek medical attention. I love him with all my heart, and so does my family but I don't know what to do.
He thinks all the money his father is spending on him is useless because he didn't go to a good college

Do your best to talk to him and reassure him that hes loved and life is worth living and keep an eye on him. If you're truly worried, its not pleasant thing to do , but you can call the authorities and have him committed. He might be upset, but atleast he'll be alive.

If your brother is in immediate danger, please call your local emergency number (i.e. in the UK call 999, in the USA or Canada call 911, in Australia call 000 and in New Zealand call 111) or call the international emergency number of 112.

Or if you can get him to call one of the following numbers that is appropriate to your country...

In the UK and Ireland, the Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123.
In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255.
In Canada, the Suicide Prevention Service on 1.833.456.4566.
In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is on 13 11 14.
In New Zealand, the Need to Talk service is on 1737 or 080017371737.
Other international helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org.
