 You are the parent of a 17 year -old boy, Guy, whose girlfriend killed herself two weeks ago after they broke up.  He has been drinking heavily since the funeral.  Your son was gone most of last night.  This morning he seems sober, but you see him headed out into the farmyard with his gun.

You're frightened. Her suicide has made you realize just how much he means to you.  Your son knows that guns and booze are an extremely deadly combination...and he's mixing them deliberately.  You can't afford to deny that he could be in grave danger.  You calm yourself and you try to keep the accusatory tone out of your voice as you explore these possible invitations to help your son.
