i moved from ontario to british columbia canada not to long ago. i left behind some really great friends. however since i have left one of my friends has been getting bullied and made fun of by some assholes and now she wants to die. ive tried to talk her out of it but im still very worried about her. ive done all i can think of to help her (calling and telling her parents and friends that live around her, talking to her and trying to encourage her. stuff like that) but im still very worried and want to help more. if i was there i would give her a hug and beat the shit out of the assholes that are doing this to her but im not and it is hurting me that i cant do anything more.

any advice would be great

    Teen suicide is a very serious matter. I am sorry to hear that you have a friend looking for an escape from life. Check out this site: http://www.teensuicide.us/articles3.html It might offer you some tips.

    If you can maybe even try and get her to join up here? I know this may not be the best option but hey if no one but you knows who she is then maybe she can learn to feel welcome here. We look out for members and if she is just looking for a place to feel welcome and make some friends who will really care about her and respect her she can defiantly find that here. I mean it worth a shot.

    that is a great idea! but if she joins she would see this post and get upset with me. she doesnt want people to know how she is truely feeling :(

    Well you can do one of two things one just delete the post or two leave and tell her we want to help. personally I would recommend the first option just so that she feels like its more of her choice rather than us sympathizing with her. obviously she does need more help than just this as she is having some difficulties but maybe with her feeling like this site is anonymous in a way(meaning that we don't know her real name) she can be convinced to be more open and we can help her realize that we all care. This may not work but honestly I feel like it could be the best shot. especially if she feels like she is refusing to go to her parents or other friends for help. she may just be feeling lonely and hurt by the world but that is no reason to kill herself. she has a lot to live for and we would like to help in any way we can. just let her know this and maybe she will consider it before she does anything rash.

    You absolutely did the right thing in involving adults close to her to get her help and monitor her. There are lots of encouraging things you can say to your friend. Tell her that someday she will be those thugs' boss when they grow up! Have them join a martial arts/self defense course. Make sure she walks in groups of friends that will stick up for him/her. And I think paperwings has the right idea. Tell her to join up with us. Good network of people here.
