You may have heard that it’s OK to sometimes not feel OK. And that’s true: It's normal for life to have its ups and downs. But if it seems like you’re only feeling down, if things feel like more than you can take, if you are considering harming yourself, or ending your life, then we have a request of you: STAY.
Reach out for support. Start by calling 1‑800‑256‑2522. People do care about you. And staying is worth it — but it may take a little time for you to feel that way, and deciding to stay is the first step in making the journey to a healthier, happier place.
