Sadly, we hear all too often of people who have lost their lives to suicide.  Many among us in the mental health blogging community have either attempted suicide or had thoughts of doing so.  There are resources available to support us; it’s just a matter of knowing what they are and being willing to reach out (I must admit that’s something I’ve been reluctant to do in the past, and I’ll talk more about this in tomorrow’s post).  Here are some of the many resources that are out there.

International:

  • The International Association for Suicide Prevention has listings of crisis centres organized by continent and other resources worldwide.
  • Unsuicide has listings of IM, chat, and text services in Australia, Canada, the USA, and the UK
  • Wikipedia has a list of suicide crisis lines for 48 different countries
  • Suicide.org has a list of local crisis lines for multiple different countries

Australia
