What would you do?

“I woke up this morning and decided I didn’t have anything to live for. I told my dad that he would find me dead when he came home,” said Michelle, a 13-year-old girl sitting in a hospital bed. Her father reacted to his daughter’s declaration by bringing her to the hospital. I was asked to assess Michelle.

After some introductions and an explanation as to why I was there, Michelle agreed to speak with me by herself.

“So, was today the first time you’d had thoughts of killing yourself?” I asked.

“Yes,” she replied, “I woke up tired of feeling this way, you know, depressed.”

“Have you thought about how you might try to kill yourself?”

" Not really; I figured I’d look around the house to see what I could use,” she stated.

What would you do next? Is this a person who needs to be hospitalized? How would you handle this situation differently if you were seeing Michelle in your office instead of a hospital?
