I need some advice please. My sister in law tried to commit suicide yesterday. We had the ER24 at the house and she refused to be admitted to hospital. She also does not want any medical help. She's got 2 children and i think she's a danger to herself as well as the children. She also mentioned she will do it again.
What can my brother do to protect her against herself and the children?
