He can go to a local state / provincial hospital or clinic and explain that he is suicidally depressed and needs to see a psychiatrist ( a good way to get their attention ) , and they have to arrange for him to be seen. Medication can be supplied, and he can ask to see a psychologiot or counsellor, which is the only way to work specifically on slef-image issues.
