I understand and appreciate your concern, Charles. Maria asks the right questions. Such information helps any mental health professional to asess the current degree of risk.
If you know that she is apparently suicidal, presumably you have good current contact with her and information about her, either directly or separately. Do her parents ecognize how distressed she is, and recognize the potential risk of self-harm ?
How can you intervene ? Through them ? Or directly ?
If the situation is seen as a potential emergency, she could be seen by a GP in the first place, or taken to any good hospital casualty to be seen and assessed by a shrink. Assessment uis the first step in identifying what further help she needs and how to arrange it.

Charles can you give us a bit more information? Do you still have contact with your wife? Can you influence her? Would it be possible for you to take her to a doctor or psychologist? Has she got a plan for how to commit suicide, has she got the means (e.g. pills or a gun), has she written letters, given away belongings or told you she is going to commit suicide? The answers to those questions will tell a mental health professional how serious the problem is.
