A friend of a friend recently died by suicide. This is certainly not the first time that suicide or mental health have touched the life of someone I care about.
It occurred to me that as a diverse and large global community, it might be helpful to have a simple list of some resources for suicide prevention and mental health crises — perhaps some day, someone on the Forum will find and make use of it to good effect.
Many countries/localities have phone hotlines, websites, and other resources available for free.
I figure if it helps one person ever, it’s worth the effort to collect some links and phone numbers in one place.
If you know of resources in your area, please share them below, and I’ll add them to this post.
