I'm really worried about one of my best friends. He's got some problems, i'm not even sure exactly what. He's got anger management problems and i think he's depressed. He's really closed off from everyone and he's already lost 2 friends this year. I'm trying to be there for him as much as i can, but now we're all getting kind of scared of him. He's been confronted by one friend, which caused the end of their friendship. He says that as long as he has his little brother he'll be ok. I'm so worried about him and i don't know what to do or say to him. Does anyone have any advice or anything?

I kinda know what you're going through here, one of my best friends was almost the exact same way. My best advice would be to get him to some kind of counseling. If you or his other friends can't convince him of that (which is what it's sounding like) maybe you could talk to his brother. He seems to trust and love his brother, so maybe if he tried to get your friend some help he would accept. I don't think it's a very good idea to let this stuff go though, feelings like that generally just don't go away by themselves. Good luck

Well, we can't convince him to see counseling, we already know that. And it would be really nice if we could talk to his brother, but his brother is only 3, so he's not much help. We're really out of ideas, i'm starting to get scared he might to something drastic.

Someone please reply, i just found out today that in grade 8 he tried to kill himself twice. He won't get help, i just wanna be there for him, but it's getting really hard for me to do that.
