Talk to someone you trust
Let family or friends know what’s going on with you. They may be able to offer support and help keep you safe.
There’s no right or wrong way to talk about suicidal feelings – starting the conversation is what’s important.
If you find it difficult to talk to someone you know, you could call your GP – ask for an emergency appointment or call 111 out of hours – they will help you find the support and help you need.
