Finding Help in a Crisis
Are you, a friend, or a loved one in a situation where help is needed immediately? To figure out if this is a crisis, answer these questions honestly:
Have I, or has my friend or a loved one:
- been thinking about, talked about, actively planned or attempted suicide?
- been unable to manage basic self-care such as eating, bathing, or dressing?
- been in, or currently is in, a dangerous abusive situation? If children are involved, are they in danger?
- engaged in high risk behaviors or threats to the safety of self or others?
- exhibited bizarre behavior, heard voices, seen things that aren’t there, or expressed uncontrollable anger?
- abused alcohol or drugs to a degree that causes imminent danger?
