Help Someone Else
If someone you know is struggling emotionally or having a hard time, you can be the difference in getting them the help they need. It’s important to take care of yourself when you are supporting someone through a difficult time, as this may stir up difficult emotions. If it does, please reach out for support yourself.
There is hope. Most people who struggle with thoughts of suicide get better. Help and hope begins with talking about it.
