I'm feeling suicidal

If you’re feeling so down that you can’t see a way out - you are not alone. Lots of people have felt like this and with help, have managed to get through it. However low you are feeling right now, there is help out there for you.

If you feel more comfortable, you can start by talking to someone you trust like a family member or friend.

However, you may feel more comfortable talking to confidential helplines where you will get support from trained staff.
