If you are in crisis and think you might hurt yourself, get help immediately. Call 9-1-1 or call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
If you are not in immediate crisis, talk to someone you trust, such as a family member, friend, church leader, or healthcare professional. Sharing your thoughts with someone can relieve a lot of pressure. Do not let feelings of embarrassment, fear, or shame stop you. Here are additional ideas that may be helpful to you:
If you have a mental health condition, you're not alone. One in 5 American adults experiences some form of mental illness in any given year. And across the population, 1 in every 25 adults is living with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or long-term recurring major depression. As with other serious illnesses, mental illness is not your fault or that of the people around you. Unfortunately, many people don't seek treatment or remain unaware that their symptoms could be connected to a mental health condition. Work with trusted mental health and healthcare professionals to ensure you get the proper treatment you need.
