Get Help Now

If you or someone you know needs help immediately*, you should take one of the following actions:


*If someone is threatening their own life or someone else’s life, this is an emergency. If you feel comfortable, you 

  should bring your friend to the Emergency Room, or call 911 or other emergency services immediately. If it’s safe to

  do so, stay with that person or do what you can to contact them or find someone to stay with them until help arrives.

  If you see someone behaving dramatically differently than usual, it may signal that this person needs help. If you

  have a gut feeling that something is not right, you should act on it.


If you or someone you know is struggling, but not in immediate danger, reach out to a mental health/healthcare professional or trusted adult as soon as possible. You can also always text START to 741-741 or call 1-800-273 TALK (8255) for 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress.
