Suicidal Thoughts

When we are in difficult situations, our mind may bring us thoughts about ending our life. Having awareness of these thoughts can then add to the difficulties we are experiencing. It is important to gain help if you are having thoughts to end your life, to help you understand these thoughts and manage these thoughts effectively. If you feel that you are unable to keep yourself safe then we advise you to tell someone and seek emergency support. The list below provides information about managing thoughts and who to access in an emergency.
