In an emergency, call 911 immediately.
If the situation is urgent and you’re concerned you, or someone else, is in immediate danger do not leave the person alone, unless you are concerned for your own safety.
If the person agrees, you could go together to the local hospital emergency department for assessment.

Have the conversation
Silence, the absence of sound and of words exchanged. No connection. No conversation.
Silence won’t make things better. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety or suicidal thoughts, talking about your feelings can be hard and yet it will make a big difference in how you feel. Reaching out to others will take a bit of courage but breaking through the silence will help in your recovery. Don’t go through this alone, support from friends, family or a health professional can help.
