This is a tough situation to be in. You are not alone and there are many resources to help you. The first step is to talk to someone about it, and ask for help. Ring your doctor if you can, or the Samaritans.
The Stay Alive app is a suicide prevention resource for the whole of the UK, packed full of useful information and tools to help you stay safe in crisis. You can use it if you are having thoughts of suicide or if you are concerned about someone else who may be considering suicide. In the surgery we have wallet sized paper versions if this works better for you.
In addition to the resources, the app includes a safety plan, customisable reasons for living, and a LifeBox. Here you can store photos and memories that are important to you.
You can also read the strategies for staying safe or explore the tips on how to stay grounded when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Try the guided-breathing exercises, and support your wellness by creating your own interactive Wellness Plan.
The app links you directly to local and national crisis resources, so you won’t need to carry around slips of paper with contact details on – it’s all stored there within the app. If the resource isn’t listed, simply add in your own.
