So, you're not feeling too great. That's okay, we're here for you.

 

Let's first make sure you're safe. Have you already done something to hurt yourself? If so, take a deep breath and call:

 

911

 

 

No? That's good to hear. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It's free, confidential, 24/7, and designed just for you.

 

1-800-273-TALK
