A girl that I was once really good friends with was throwing a New Year's eve party. Because of school, clubs, different sports we're not as close but I still say hi to her and have conversations. She invited a whole bunch of people over that I guess didn't show up or cancel at the last minute. I received a text today from her to never talk to her again and that she just got out of the hospital from trying to kill herself from the stress I cause and to go ahead and pick my other friends that her and I hope, karma follows me into the new year. I keep telling myself that it's not me that she just needs some help but my emotions are getting the better of me. Should I talk to her, apologized, leaver her be?

Well, you weren't the only person to be invited; thus, I would say no. Her stress and lack of control of her life caused her to the suicide attempt.1

Talk to her and reach out a hand of friendship to her, but don't apologise because you aren't responsible for her actions. Only she is.
People who attempt suicide or succeed in committing suicide always have underlying issues. There's never one particular incident which causes them to want to end their life. They have long- term issues and most of the time no one is aware of it.
She obviously needs professional help. When people feel such despair they don't really want to end their life they just want to end their emotional suffering.
She is soley responsible for how she responds to life and the people around her , and she is also responsible for seeking help, although others can support and encourage her.
Never feel you are to blame for someone else's behaviour, because that's a heavy burden to carry when you. ❤0
