Hotlines and Resources
I know you are going through an extremely difficult time right now, but you do not have to go through your pain alone. Please find someone to talk to right away: a family member, a friend, a therapist, a member of your church or a doctor. Talking about your suicidal thoughts will help you feel less overwhelmed.
We are not a crisis hotline and do not provide medical advice, but there are people and resources out there that can help you get through this.
Hotline counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They will listen to you without judgment [we can’t vouch for the confidentiality of these hotlines] and can talk with you about everything you’re going through.
- The Boys and Girls Town National Hotline at 1-800-448-3000__**
_**_If you would like the help of a professional immediately, you can call 911, take yourself to the nearest emergency room, or Find a Therapist.
Support groups exist in many communities to help you get through this. Try these organizations:
- NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness)
- DBSA (Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance)
- Befrienders Worldwide
- PsychCentral Support Groups
