If you are contemplating suicide and do not feel safe to be alone or with others, call 988 the Suicide Hot-line.
You are not alone. Help is a phone call or text away.

If you suspect a friend or family member is at risk for suicide, trust your instincts. It is important that you reach out and let them know you are concerned. Mental health issues are medical conditions. If you thought someone was experiencing a medical emergency such as a heart attack, you would seek immediate assistance and the same is true for suicide symptoms.
