Suicide is a very real and serious problem. If you or someone you know is feeling or acting suicidal, please, get help immediately. We urge you to talk to someone about your feelings. Whether it be a close friend, family member, therapist, religious or spiritual advisor, an SSPC counselor, or a hotline counselor, help is out there.
