What makes teenagers give up on life?

Last night I went to bed and was nearly asleep when my 15 daughter comes on the room and starts crying.
I tell her to come in my bed and tell me why she is so upset. While I'm hugging my daughter she tells me about one of her friend that nearly kill herself today, and that she didn't know what to do.
And this is her friends story......
My 15 year old goes to her friends place everything is going along OK when her friends boyfriend ring up and dumps her friend.
She then tell my daughter she needs to go to the toilet.
After a while my daughter knock on the toilet door because her friend has been in there for a long time.
My daughter get worried and try's to get in the toilet to find her friend sitting behind the door blocking her from coming in, my daughter pushes on the door so hard it fin dally opens to her horror her friend is cutting her wrist and saying she doesn't want to live anymore.
My daughter wants to do something but doesn't know what.  So she tells her friend she is going to call the ambulance, her friend says no, so my daughters says let me call your dad the daughter says ok.
The dad is at work and cant come home until after work.
Feeling like she hasn't done enough my daughter starts crying and telling the her friend until her father comes home from work.
It was so tore at my heart to hear this.  I made sure to told she did everything right.
We need to be there no matter what for our kids.  I know money is important to make, but shouldn't our kids come first????
