Suicide Awareness

​Resources for Immediate Help

The following resources can be a lifeline – use them!

Call the suicide hotline. 1-800-273-TALK is your connection to someone who can help. The hotline is open around the clock, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. You will be connected to a trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, and he or she can help you immediately.

Go to the emergency room. Healthcare professionals are trained to leap into action the moment you say “Help me.” They will be more than happy to assist you in any way they can. Never hesitate to go, and don’t worry about insurance or payment – in many cases, the evaluation and follow-up services are free.
