If you are in a place where you need someone to talk to right now, please call 1-800-273-8255 or visit suicidepreventionlifeline.org

Don't give up. Make the call. Just reach out to someone. DON'T LET GO. One more day might be OK? Critical mass is a "Right here, Right now" kinda gig - just make the call! Give it another day. Maybe two. Maybe three. Happy is coming! He might be hiding around the corner, but Happy is coming. Please call. It's Ok. You are not alone. There is no shame in making that phone call.

These people are there - right away, 24 hours a day to help you or help you help someone you love who is reaching critical mass. DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL. If you are in doubt, as a friend, ask yourself - "Can I live with making the wrong choice?" DO NOT TAKE A SUICIDE THREAT LIGHTLY!!!

If it is an emergency, please call 911.

If this is your friend, do not assume that you know the answers - do not buy into the idea that they are "only doing it for attention" - TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY - ask yourself - would you rather have your friend alive and mad at you or, well, dead? Take it seriously.

Shit happens, people, but it is temporary!

Do not hesitate - just dial. Somebody cares - we care!


There is no shame in being human and reaching out for help. None whatsoever.

Don't let it be the end of something beautiful to come. Please don't.
