In Crisis?

If this is an emergency please dial 911 or your local emergency services.

If you feel you are struggling, a good place to start is to ask your primary care physician for a referral to a therapist. Remember that you are NOT alone and reach out for help.

If you feel someone you know is at risk: 1. Talk to them in private. 2.Listen to their story. 3. Tell them you care about them. 4. Ask directly if they are thinking about suicide. 5. Encourage them to seek treatment or to contact their doctor or therapist. 6. Avoid debating the value of life, minimizing their problems or giving advice. Further Resources»
