Need Help?

If you are thinking about harming yourself or attempting suicide, tell someone who can help right away:

  • Call your doctor’s office.
  • Call 911 for emergency services.
  • Go to the nearest hospital emergency room.
  • Contact one of the free, 24-hour crisis resources listed below to speak with a trained crisis counselor.

Ask a family member or friend to help you make these calls or take you to the hospital.

If you have a family member or friend in a crisis:

If you have a family member or friend who is suicidal, do not leave them alone. Try to get the person to seek help immediately from an emergency room, physician, or mental health professional. Take seriously any comments about suicide or wishing to die. Even if you do not believe your family member or friend will actually attempt suicide, the person is clearly in distress and can benefit from your help in receiving mental health treatment.
