Welcome to the Beyond Blue forums. Thank you for sharing your story with us. We hope you are able to find the support you are looking for here.
It sounds like the situation with your partner has been wearing on you for sometime, before we talk about them, we want to check with you to see how you are doing.
What supports do you have for yourself at the moment?
Have you been able to talk to anyone you trust about this situation?
With your partner, it sounds like they are going thorough quite a dark time at the moment and have been having difficulty seeking help.
When they have expressed thoughts of suicide to you, have they mentioned any specific plan?
Have you been able to speak to anyone about his thoughts?
If you feel like he may act upon his thoughts we would recommend contacting your local CATT team (https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/crisis-management
), presenting him to your nearest emergency department or calling 000.
Even if you are uncertain about his actions, speaking to your local CATT team, may help clarify the situation and provide you with advice as to how to approach his suicidality.
In addition, if you need more support through this, we’re available 24/7 by phone on 1300 22 4636 or on Webchat 1pm-12am AEDT on our website: www.beyondblue.org.au/getsupport. One of our professional mental health counsellors at our Support Service will give you support and point you in the right direction for help in your area.
Thank you for reaching out today.
