Discussions - Suicide info

Are you having thoughts of suicide?

If so, we're sorry you feel so badly right now. If you are having thoughts of suicide, you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

  1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better. (helplines worldwide)

  2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called The Samaritans. Send an e-mail to Jo: jo@samaritans.org and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

  3. There is a website you may find helpful, called
    Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers,
