What to expect from a suicide hotline
Have you ever thought about calling a suicide hotline, but chose not to because you didn’t know what was going to happen? This article answers some of those questions and also provides the contact information for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
If you’d rather text than talk, you can always text NAMI to 741-741 to get in contact with a free, trained crisis counselor.
If it’s an emergency, please don’t hesitate to call 911. That’s what it’s there for. You’re not wasting their time or making a big deal out of nothing.
There is no shame in asking for help. We all need it sometimes.
