Help Is A Phone Call Away!

Depression and suicide is not specific to any population. Anyone can be affected. Below are a list of hotlines you can share, print out, give to friends and family. If you know of more numbers, please feel free to add them to the list!

These issues are not limited to youths.  Many adults find themselves feeling hopeless, depressed, struggling to cope with a myriad of issues.  Speak up when you or someone you know is talking about suicide, suicidal ideation, violence, or going through a difficult time.   SAMHSA estimates more than 90% of those who die by suicide have a diagnosable mental health disorder.  People who die by suicide are frequently experiencing undiagnosed, undertreated, or untreated depression.  Help is available and you are not alone.
 Don't let your silence be a source of regret for the rest of your life.  Please talk to someone if you or someone you know feels helpless or hopeless.  It's not always easy to talk to a friend or family member when we're struggling. It doesn't mean there is not help out there and people who do want to help.  Please do not make a decision with a permanent result based on a temporary issue.  Talk to someone. Get help and remember, you are not alone.

Please keep this list of hotline numbers and share with your loved ones:
