What if a person threatens to commit suicide and doesn’t want to go to the hospital as well?
One needs to assess the situation in terms of severity of the threats. If the attempts were made in terms of self harm how severe have they been? A para-suicide is an attempt where the aim is not death but to draw attention to other problems. One also needs to assess their own behavior when such gestures or threats are made. In case the person threatens to commit suicide if certain conditions are not fulfilled and those conditions are readily fulfilled by the other person then such behaviour is reinforced. In such conditions one needs to be assertive and should not get manipulated. Also the person making such threats does need immediate professional help and if the person is not willing to go to the hospital then consider an option of arranging a home visit.
