If YOU are in some form of crisis or feeling suicidal, then contact someone and let them know about it.
If someone you know is going through a hard time, do know that you are already helping just by being there for the person! A crisis is rarely caused by a single event. It is often the result of multiple factors over a period of time. Many suicidal people will try to communicate their intentions directly or indirectly to someone they know. People who talk or hint about suicide do mean it. If someone you know is having thoughts about suicide, please seek help immediately.
If you are feeling suicidal now, please stop long enough to read this. It will only take about five minutes.
