Today is National Suicide Prevention Day, so I wanted to post some resources about that.
First, here’s the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline:
1-800-273-TALK or 1-800-273-8255.
Of course, it’s not the only helpline out there. Here’s a pretty comprehensive list of helplines for depression, domestic abuse, alcohol and drug abuse, pregnancy, self-harm, etc.
If you’d like to help someone you know through social media, The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides links to various safety teams at social media sites.
