The pain you are currently experiencing and may have experienced for a while probably feels unbearable. You might be feeling as if you have no other choice or no other options. Suicide is not your only choice; there are resources and people available to help. You may be feeling discouraged because no one has noticed your pain and offered to help. Please talk to someone you trust about how you are feeling, many people have felt suicidal in the past and have managed to work through those feelings. Reach out for help, call a crisis centre, talk to a professional or a friend. THE PAIN CAN END

We receive many e-mails from individuals in crisis seeking help. To provide the best possible assistance to you, we need to speak with you directly on the phone. By talking with you anonymously and confidentially, we are best able to find out the specifics of your situation and work with you to find effective answers. We are not equipped to respond to crisis-oriented e-mails.
