Are you experiencing suicidal thoughts?

Many people experience depression and thoughts of suicide but it can feel difficult to talk about these, especially for men. Remember you are not alone. Reach out, there is help available.

Stories of hope and recovery

Struggling with thoughts of suicide can feel overwhelming. Feelings such as uselessness or self-hatred can be so strong that you feel unable to look past them and towards your future. It’s ok to feel like this. But it doesn’t have to be your reality. With help, things can change. 

Talk about how you feel

Living with thoughts of suicide can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to deal with these feelings alone. Sharing the problem with a trusted friend or a family member can give you a different perspective on how you’re feeling and open the door for care and support.
