Suicide Prevention Resources

Mental health concerns are not about a personal weakness or a personality fault.  Mental health is about a brain that is just not working the way we wish it would.  It is a medical concern. In fact, 1 in 5 adults will have a mental health crisis in any given year.


Below are some places to find non-judgmental support and help.  Many of these resources are here for all sorts of situations and not just suicide. If you just need to talk, please reach out.  If you are having thoughts of suicide please know that you are not alone, and that help is here.
