Our expert says:
Its hard to imagine what was going wrong within his family, that one child should have committed suicide, and the other attempted it, within months of the divorce. You don't mention the children's ages, which might help understand. One worries that they must surely have been obviously distressed, and should have been in therapy already. The daughter will now be even further distressed, and must be seen by and cared for by a psychiatrist asap.
As for how you can "be there for him", make it clear to him that you care, and want to help --- but ask him to let you know when and how you can do so.
