Feeling in Crisis?
You might be looking at this site feeling really desperate for help and may need to speak to someone right now.
Do you have a friend or a trusted person you can speak to right now? Give them a call or text and let them know you need someone to speak to. You could also find something that makes you feel glad to be alive. This could be a photograph of loved ones, a happy memory, or music which you really love.
