Suicide Information and Resources
If you are thinking about suicide, please don't harm yourself.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. It is forever.
It cannot be taken back. It changes everything for forever. It ends

It steals away all potential and leaves a wasteland of regrets and pain.
And it disrupts the natural order of life by taking a precious being from
our presence and robbing us of their beauty, depth, meaning, and spirit.
Your life matters. Pain can be alleviated.
Whatever has happened, whatever you're feeling, whatever you've experienced . . .
there are answers and there are solutions.
This can get better. We can find an answer
Please, give hope a chance.
