Default What do you do

Currently, I am legitimately terrified that I am going to go to school one day and one or both of my friends won't be there
We'd been planning to go to the same high school together, but we ended up with me and one friend going to a certain high school and my other friend going to a different one.
Neither of them took it well.
They were both crying and panicking. I had no idea what to say to them- and I still don't.

One of them told me that she had planned to kill herself last night, but backed out at the last minute.

I don't know what I'd do without either of them.
I don't know how to help them either because I don't have anything to tell them that I actually believe.
As far as I know, it's too late for any of us to switch schools.

What do I tell them?
What do you do when you're legitimately afraid that your friends are going to kill themselves?

I am sorry that you are so worried about your friends. I see that it's a while since you posted this. How is it going?

If you are worried that your friends are going to try to kill themselves, it is important that you tell them that they are not alone, and that you encourage them to contact medical professionals, a teacher, or the police.
You can find some info about what to do here
WHO | Do you know someone who may be considering suicide?

If you're in the US, there's a free helpline you can call if you are feeling suicidal:
