Help

Suicide

There's information here if you're feeling low and need someone to listen. Also, there's help for families, carers, friends and others who might know someone in this state.

A lot of the information is aimed at young people, and many of the sites highlighted might have more than one section aimed at the different people in these situations. We also include information for those who have been bereaved by suicide.
