Hi Juliana 15,
Welcome to the forums. It sounds like you’re really concerned about your brother’s wellbeing and we are sorry to hear how much of an impact this situation has had on you. We understand the challenges that come with trying to support loved ones in a distressed state. If you are finding that your brother is having trouble making the steps to keep himself safe, there are some steps that you can take to ensure he gets the right assistance.
If you feel like your brother is in a situation of risk of harm or suicide and he is not able to see a GP, you can seek more immediate help for him by contacting his local Mental Health Team at the nearest hospital or support them in attending the Emergency Department. If you feel they are not able to keep themselves safe from acting on their thoughts about suicide or self-harm, this is an emergency and you need to call 000 (triple zero) immediately.
If you are struggling to make these steps please call our team of professional mental health counsellors at our Support Service on 1300 22 4636 who can talk through some support options with you. Our team can also be reached by email (responses with 24 hours) or Webchat (3pm – 12am) at http://www.beyondblue.org.au/get-support
Keep checking to let us know how you’re going – you’re not alone in this.
