If You Are Feeling Suicidal

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL

Please, please, please, take the time to talk to someone.  The taking your life is too final of a decision to not talk about.  There are many groups out there waiting for your call.  While no one can truly understand the depth of the pain that you are currently feeling, there are those who want to listen and want you to know that you are not alone.  Crisis intervention hotlines accept calls from the suicidal, or anyone who wishes to discuss a problem.  Below is a list of just a few people you could talk to.
