What does a hospital do if you're suicidal?

What happens if I show up at the hospital, and say that I am suicidal, which I am close to just killing myself and only just get my life over beside . What can they do.. do I just see a nurse and go home, or if it a in one piece bunch of stuff... because I don't want to spend a few hours there.
If you really feel suicidal then run to the hospital, it will look better if you go before you do anything afterwards if you do, do something. Maybe they can help you get to the bottome of it and minister to you move on from these feelings. Ok ! First rotten! WHY WOULD U WANT TO KILL URSELF.
DONT U KNOW WHEN THINGS ARE AT THEIR WORSTTTTTTTTTTTT - SOMETHING GOOD COMES ALONG...THERE'S SO MANY SAYINGS LIKE THAT...
PLEASE DO NOT DO ANYTHING STUPID...YOU DONT WANT TO END YOUR LIFE...YOU HAVE A FUTURE AHEAD OF U AND U WOULD HURT URSELF N EVERYONE AROUND U THAT LOVES U! I DONT EVEN KNOW YOU AND IT'S BOTHERING ME...CAN YOU IMAGINE...HOW YOUD HURT OTHERS?
IF U WANT TO TALK ...I CAN TALK TO U...NOTHING IS EVER THAT BAD THAT U NEED TO KILL URSELF. U CANT GO BACK FROM THAT...LIFE IS FILLED WITH CHOICES WE MAKE AND SOMETIMES WE DO THE WRONG THINGS...BUT EVENTUALLY ITLL WORK OUT.BUT THE THING IS...U CAN FIX OR CHANGE OUTCOMES...WITH DEATH THERE IS NO COMING BACK.
WHATS GOING ON? TALK TO ME!
Here's what will likely happen:

At the Emergency Room you will be taken to a room to discuss your state of mind (ie. suicidal) with a nurse. The nurse will also fact-find and ask you general strength questions.

Likely a mental health social worker on-call beside the hospital will come and speak to you next.

If it is decided it is surrounded by your best interests you will be admitted into the hospital. Please note - if you are admit VOLUNTARILY you will be able to leave when you get the impression you are better rather when the hospital says you are better and will enjoy more rights as a patient.

If you are admitted the hospital will predictable do a blood test and or urine test and endow with you a wrist band. Then you will be taken up to the hospital's behavioural unit (mental ward). Your purse and sometimes your shoelaces) will be taken and put surrounded by a locker for safety. If you are under 18 you will be within a children's unit, with any other lower than 18-year olds currently hospitalised. If you are over 18 you will be placed with adults.

Hope this explains what to expect. You will be there longer than a few hours. Likely you will be contained by the hospital for *days*. This is NOT a bad thing, it can be one of the most of use milestones in overcomming the depression driving you to such desperation.

I feel for you and hope that you restore your health soon.

Woah Woah Woah slow down. First off if your going to commit suicide you dont tell anyone. Not that im trying to come first you in any direction but yea its your life. And if you budge to a hospital and say your suicidal they will keep you at the hospital untill they reason you wont hurt yourself. Also they will call your parents and everything.
Answers:    If you show up, they will want to keep you for close watch. BUT, it is important that you speak to someone - I understand you don't want to spend time in attendance. Please, speak to someone! You do not want to end your life. It may be rough right in a minute, but you will make it through it. You will. I know you will! You may not see an end to doesn`t matter what is going on, things are truly black and dark and you feel resembling it is just not worth it - but it is! Please call a suicidal hot rank -8OO-784-2433 or 1-8OO-273-8255. If you are deaf - dial 1-8OO-799-4TTY (4889).

I believe in you! You are truly special or you would not be reaching out right now. Make that appointment, at least. Please make a post and tolerate us know how you are doing. :)
In the UK.
They will attend to your urgent medical needs, (This may include an over hours of darkness stay), and then hand you a notification with crisis numbers on, and arrange a psychiatric review for you within the week.
You do not own to attend the psychiatric review, nor stay against your will after your injuries have been see to.
Giannam explains it pretty well. I was taken to a mental hospital by the police. I call 911 on myself because I really thought I would go through with end my life. So when I got in attendance, a man asked me to sit down and he basically talked to me more or less my feelings; suicidal, depressed, anxious. Then he took me to the children center ( I was 15) and this nurse come and asked me to come into this room. She closed the door and she said she would conduct a contra man-search. Which is when they ask you to undress (completely naked) And search you for things like knife, guns, drugs, etc. Then they give you a wristband with your describe on it, and you have to take a urine question paper and a blood test. I stayed there for 3 days (I admit myself voluntarily). Woah Woah Woah slow down. First off if your going to commit suicide you dont tell anyone. Not that im trying to come first you in any direction but yea its your life. And if you budge to a hospital and say your suicidal they will keep you at the hospital untill they reason you wont hurt yourself. Also they will call your parents and everything.

They will probably admit you to the Psychiatric Ward. If you are having these vibrations, PLEASE go to the hospital. They will keep u until a doctor doesn't reflect on u will harm yourself anymore.
