Suicidal?

Suicide is the act of intentionally ending your life. If you’re reading this because you have, or have had, thoughts about taking your own life, it’s important you ask someone for help.

Many people who have had suicidal thoughts say they were so overwhelmed by negative feelings they felt they had no other option. However, with support and treatment were able to allow the negative feelings to pass.
