If you are depressed or suicidal, or if you know someone who might be, you can get help from your local crisis centre/distress line.
If you're worried that a friend may be suicidal, talk to them, and most importantly, listen. You can then assist them with contacting a crisis line or getting other help.
If you're a survivor who's lost someone to suicide, crisis lines are a good source of support for you too.
