Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
It sounds like he is healing from his first real heartache and so he is saying things that he doesn't mean. We all thought irrational things when that first love left. If you think he could benefit from counseling it is best to find a therapist in your area that is independent. A school counselor is a trained professional but they often are equipped to handle behavior problems and school related matters. Not only they busy but they tend to be focused on those things. You can find a therapist on the site for the American Psychological Association. I would encourage you to find a therapist if you think he can't cope with this breakup, it is interfering with his school work or he is having other problems as a result of this event. Some of his pessimism will change as time goes on and he finds it isn't the end of his world but a therapist can evaluate him to see him he is having feelings above and beyond what is normal. You should consider this if he is entertaining for a minute harming himself. You also have to consider what he wants. Although he is a teen he may be very resistant to this idea. Use your best judgment.
