If you feel like you're in immediate danger of self-harm or having thoughts of hurting yourself or others:
- It is best to call 9-1-1 and/or go to the closest hospital near you where you can receive immediate help from trained staff to help evaluate your situation and steps to being safe.
- If you are often having suicidal thoughts, please keep your closest hospital's phone number close, a list of other numbers like the Suicide Prevention Hotline, and other personal items to remind yourself to seek the help you need. We recommend writing out these resources out on paper or on phone and keep them on you at all times when you need them.
