We all have bad or difficult days. Sometimes you just need a friend to talk to but other times you may need something more. This support doesn’t always have to cost a lot of money and you may be eligible for assistance through your partners or your own employer.
There are helplines available 24 hours a day for you to call or chat to online. Some services are specific to men or children.
Here is an outline of some services that may be able to provide you or your partner with more support to help you out.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Since its inception, the Lifeline has engaged in a variety of initiatives to improve crisis services and advance suicide prevention.
