Talk to Psychiatrist: If your daughter is on Suicide Watch, that is a medical emergency that requires an adult to be monitoring her constantly. Talk to her Psychiatrist and potentially a social worker. There may be in patient services that you could use or respite care services available to help you keep your job.
