How do I as a straight man help my best friend?

Q: How do I as a straight man help my best friend & her family get through a terrible problem back when the son was 13? I sorry that I’m holding things back but I believe it’s up to the parent’s who should tell the story. His mother & father are too proud to seek professional help,( I see their son suffer just as you did in your movie ! ( Again which I can’t thank you enough by making it ). Please help me with something: ideas or anything ! Thank You Again

Dear Helper,

Without more information, I think your best help for this family and your best friend is to be a positive, supportive loving person in their lives.  There is no pride in refusing professional help, only pain.  You are a kind caring friend.  Keep at it.
