You may also want to check out these resources, and most importantly seek help as soon as possible from a mental health professional: counselors, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists, your Employee Assistance Program, or in community agencies. You can also consider church-affiliated counseling centers, pastoral care centers, United Way Agencies, your primary care physician, or the emergency department at a hospital. If you are struggling to find the right professional, please tell a trusted friend about your feelings and ask them to help you find help quickly.

Do Not Stop Asking for Help

If you or someone else is imminently suicidal - on the verge of suicide - please take yourself or the other person to the nearest hospital emergency room or call 911. Suicide is final . There is no going back. There is no chance to reconsider the action of suicide. It is "The Forever Decision" (Dr. Paul Quinnett, PhD).
