Oftentimes, we don’t know what to do or say to others going through emotional pain, especially when we think the person might be suicidal. Here are 5 steps you can take to help out and possibly save a life.
If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or mental stress, text ‘Start’ to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741. It’s free, confidential; and someone is available to talk to you 24/7. You can visit their website www.crisistextline.org for more information.
You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255).
Or you can contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness (800-950-6264) for support and local referrals.
You can also go to Mental Health America to find a support group in your area.
