    I have a situation and need some advice. If someone who suffers from severe anxiety and depression and has admitted to suicidal thoughts is all of a sudden unreadable. How long do you wait to take action? Should I go over there or call someone (like police) to check it out?

    Hugs. i have been there with one of my best friends. Go there. You can also call the CAT team. They can come out and assess situation and hospitalise them if needed or refer them to other services.

    I spoke to him last night around 9:30. Now nothing (and we have whatsapp so I know he's not even read my messages).

    Yes, definitely this ^^
