You are loved. I can guarantee you that there is at least one person who cares very deeply about you. I can guarantee that there is another as well. And another. And another.

If you are experiencing pain, whether physical or emotional, and you feel so helpless that suicide seems to be the only way out, just remember that you can always turn to a friend, a parent, a teacher, a principal, or another adult. 

The federal government also cares. They established the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to help. You can call them at 1-800-273-8255.

If you have a story about how you survived a suicide attempt or were able to stay strong through depression, please contact us. We'd love to share it.
