I don't want to take suicide threats lightly - but when they're being made over and over, in contexts where the threats are clearly instrumental (i.e. to get someone to do something they might not otherwise do), I think it's legitimate to say "okay, kill yourself or don't, that will be your decision and nothing to do with me. You know where to find the crisis line number".
