Suicidal feelings can come in waves so reach out for help to ride it through. Many people who feel suicidal don’t really want to die, they just don’t know how else to get out of the pain, hopelessness and utter despair they are feeling. The brain is being thrown into turmoil by its neurochemistry, wiring and emotions. When this happens it is hard think straight. Get help NOW!

All the problems that have brought you to this point cannot be solved immediately but, with help, you can learn how to manage them. There are options out there you may not have known about before. There is Hope!
