This page is NOT...
a replacement for medical treatment, mental health treatment or medications. Please follow your personal health care provider's advice and instructions on all of those things! And if they are not working for you, call your health care professional and let them know! And then insist that they help you make changes until you feel better. NEVER stop advocating for your own well-being and mental health.
If you are having thoughts about harming yourself or others, please call:
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
(in the U.S.) at 1-800-273-8255
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a United States-based suicide prevention network of over 160 crisis centers that provides 24/7 service via a toll-free hotline with the number 1-800-273-8255. It is available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.
And also, I encourage you to reach out to your therapist, mental health specialist, and people that love you.
If you are in need of mental health treatment but it is NOT an emergency, AND you are not having thoughts of suicide or other self-harm or of hurting others, but you don't know where to start...
Contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) HelpLine Monday through Friday, 10 am–6 pm, ET. at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or email@example.com
