We are *not* a Suicide Intervention Group. If you are experiencing extreme suicide ideation, you need more assistance than we are qualified to give. Please contact your doctor, your hospital or a local Hotline for immediate assistance. We will be here for you once you are stabilized. Even though we have all, at one time or the other, experienced subtle suicide ideation, constant or continuous threats of suicide hold the potential to adversely affect members.

We care about you so very much...We know you are in pain.

That is why you must call a hotline now.

You need help. You want the torment to end with your recovery, if not important to you, it is important to your loved ones and to us.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Please call a hotline.

Depression Forums MUST refer you on.

This forum is NOT able to provide immediate crisis intervention or professional counseling.

You need to speak to a PROFESSIONAL who has the training and resources


Please, don't wait. Don't put it off. You need to pick up the phone and take action now.

For The European Union who cannot call a Suicide Hotline in their country, there is also the European emergency telephone number 112. It can be called from any country in the EU and from some other European countries for any emergency. The person will be redirected to the most appropriate service of the closest hospital, for example the closest psychiatric emergences. The number also works with mobile phones.

112 is not aimed at providing a psychological help; it is rather like the United States 911. But it can be useful for people in crisis who need to see a psychiatrist immediately and cannot wait for an appointment.

I want to thank Member Le Renard for this information.
