Our expert says:
I wonder under what circumstances you happened to see something so private on someone else's computer. Apparently you were being nosy, as having that sort of access to someone else's computer isn't common, especially if they are drafting a suicide note. Was it entirely accidental ? Or is it possible that she might have partly wanted you to see it ?
You could choose to talk with her about the troubles she is going through, and emphasize that you care about her and worry about her, and feel concerned that she really deserves some proper help.
And you could very gently discuss with her closer family that you are concerned that she may be getting deeply depressed about her troubles, and that you fear there might be some risk of suicide. It may be best not to talk about actually seeing the draft suicide note as such, not so much to protect yourself, but because otherwise the discussions could become all about the privacy issue, and less about the fact that your friend needs help
