My friend is in a mental facility where she can’t self harm or attempt suicide. She is 19 and hasn’t been sectioned. She told me she’s not going to eat or drink anymore. What do I do?
can the staff force feed/hydrate her?

she is suicidal and has been in hospital 4 times this week

hi Christina :welcome: !

can you phone up the staff and say you'd like to discuss her treatment
they wont tell you all of it
because of confidentiality
but if you are a close friend or relative
they might at least listen to you
if you ask how you can help

I hope you find it helpful here

:welcome::hug5:🍀
