"call the local PD to do a wellness check on him." Minnysota, you're absolutely right. The police will come, even if it's the 30th time there's been a threat. I'm surprised nobody here is mentioning being on the rejection of a horrible breakup and how it really does make you want to end it all. It feels like shit. It feels so painful you do want to die. It isn't a trick or being manipulative, though it may be a sign of mental health problems. // I'm not saying the rejector should come back. That isn't possible. But take the threat seriously, because it may well be.

Oh, Kohz, so sorry she has to put up with all those calls (doesn't she have caller ID?), voice mails (delete delete), text messages (block or delete), emails (delete or send them to a mailbox she doesn't read). How awful! Poor baby! The ex's mother, in contrast, may have to put up with a funeral and handling her kid's estate, plus no grandchildren or son at Thanksgiving or Christmas. But you're so right. Suicide is so "manipulative." // Come on! Woman up! Suicide hotline. Police. Every time. If he's not serious, it will get him to think about whether she's really worth the grief. If he is serious, it may save his mother and father a llfe-long memory of a son who died unnecessarily. SUICIDE THREATS SHOULD ALWAYS BE TREATED SERIOUSLY.

Re Single and Worried. My son DID commit suicide after the tenth time his girlfriend broke up with him. Sure, it was stupid and manipulative for him to hang himself, but who is the victim here? The advice given by the Suicide Prevention organization is good and right, but one further piece of advice might be: "If you jerk somebody around long enough, maybe you will eventually goad that somebody into killing himself." If you break up, break up, don't keep coming back for hugs and kisses and a place to live and all that and then run off with the first pretty face that offers to give you shinier hugs and kisses. And call the suicide prevention line when somebody threatens. Call the relevant police if the threat is right now. Every time. Especially in the middle of the night.
