Find out how to get immediate help if you or someone you know is in danger of self-harm or suicide.
If you or a loved one are having thoughts of suicide or self-harm, please call 1-800-273-TALK (or 1-800-273-8255) anytime, 24/7. You’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area. If you don’t want to call, talk online with a counselor at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
