I would say call the cops and you would do it not because of her but because of her kids.

The problem is, unless they're in one of about 5 states there may be little or nothing that can be done by them.(it probably doesn't hurt to call the local PDs non emergency line to ask if there is something that can be done).

This is one of the few cases when I'd say that something CA or FL does might actually be good. They provide a mechanism where the police can take someone deemed to be in imminent danger to themselves or someone else and place them under a 72hr psychiatric hold. In short they would be evaluated by doctors for up to 72hours.

If it was determined that the problem was serious they could be committed for longer. As shitty an option as that is, I'd rather have a friend of mine hate me for the remainder of their life than a child lose their parent. Yes she may not be the worlds best parent right now but things can improve and she can get joint custody at a later date.

I'd bet your not in one of the 5 listed states which gives you less options. Honestly the question is, how badly do you want to make sure she doesn't do it? About all you may be able to do is be there for her and this likely means alot. I.e. talking to them potentially every day to see how they are doing. Visiting them to let them know that they are not alone and that things will get better.

Letting her now that even if she loses them now, if she improves and gets her life in order she might be able to get joint custody later. Realistically it could require A LOT of time on your part to make sure she's in a healthy place or to get her to seek out treatment. It's about how badly you want to make sure she doesn't do it.

But on the plus side if you really do put in a ton of time you probably would be able to PIIHB at some point. The downside is that she could go psycho on you after.
