My son's friend is sending suicidal messages

“Anyone else had your kid’s friends sending them suicidal type stuff over text/social media. This became a HUGE problem with my son being anxious and led to taking the phone away altogether for a couple of months. He’s got it back for calls now and planning to ease back into texting and see how it goes with a contract in place now. This seems to be a trend with kids though talking about suicidal type thoughts. It’s awful.”

" I’m not there yet age wise but I honestly think it’s best to call the police if someone (anyone) is threatening self harm.
As someone who’s friend died by suicide as a teen it is not worth risking it, and I think it’s dangerous to assume it’s attention seeking. I’d call police first, parents second."
