"Don't jump, bud. It's not worth it," one deputy said.

The suicidal man in the video is heard telling the deputies that "I'm drugged up, bro."
The deputies acknowledge and assure him that they can help.
"We'll help you, there's no problem."

The man finally agreed to come down and was taken to a mental health facility.
