Reach Out

If you are struggling mentally or physically; have thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else; or are the victim of a crime - you have options:

Call 911 – simple as it sounds – someone is there to respond and help. You can also go to an emergency room. Confide in a trusted friend, relative or clergy person. You may also reach out anonymously to any of the organizations listed on this page.

How critical is it that I speak with someone? How do I know? See this blog post that details situations which can trigger your need to reach out. It also provides warning signs for you or others who care about someone going through a trying time. I have no affiliation with the writer of this post or any company associated with it or the links within it.

Many thanks and thumbs up to Addie and Danny for finding this additional resource. See this link:
