ALl you can do is explain why you don't think this is a good idea, to remind her that feling like this means she has a severe but treatable illness called Depression, and to persuade her to get help --- calling the Lifeline in the first place, and then seeing a good local shrink or at least a GP, for proper assessment and treatment.
