Resources for Suicide Prevention

IF YOU ARE IN CRISIS PLEASE CALL 1-800-273-TALK (8255) OR 800-TLC-TEEN (800-562-8336)

Many people think about suicide at some point in their life, and these thoughts about suicide can reflect the intense pain and sense of desperation that depression can bring. Having these thoughts does not mean you should act on them! A great number of people who attempt or come close to suicide look back with immense gratitude that they did not succeed in taking their own life as their lives and feelings about their lives improved with help.

There are people who care about you. There are people who want to help you. Below are a number of resources for those considering suicide - use them! Don't give up - things will get better. You are loved.
