With severe depression, worry about suicide is a concern. What is most important is to take any thoughts or verbalizations of wanting to die or take one’s life seriously. If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, please seek professional assistance. Much can be done to help.
If you’re concerned for a family member or friend, please encourage him or her to get help. If the circumstances are urgent, and a PsyCare clinic is not open, either call 211 (Help Hotline) or go to the emergency room.
