In brief: Hospital
Suicidal tendency is an emergency.
She has to be hospitalized for counselling by a psychiatrist especially if depressed.

In brief: Get Help ASAP
Be there for support, but guide her to professional help asap.
And if you are concerned, it is safer to violate her confidence and let a responsible adult help instead of suffering tragic consequences.
