Important Updates:


If you or someone you know has ongoing thoughts of death or suicide, or if a suicide attempt has been made, contact a doctor or go to a hospital emergency room immediately or call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

If you have begun to think of suicide, it's important to recognize these thoughts for what they are: expressions of a treatable, medical illness. Don't let embarrassment stand in the way of vital communication with your physician, family or friends. Take immediate action and talk to somebody today. Remember, suicide is a permanent solution to a problem that is temporary.

When people don't understand the facts about suicide and depressive illness, they may respond in ways that cut off communication and worsen their feelings. That's why it's important to find someone you can trust and can talk with honestly and openly. It's also why your mental health professional is an important resource in helping you - and your family.
