I’m feeling suicidal
You can contact us at any hour of the day by phoning Freecall 1800 247 247. Or if you can simply text HELP to 51444. Or contact us at the following centres for the prevention of self-harm and suicide.
We know that you must be feeling alone, afraid and unsure of what to do next. You probably don’t want to tell anyone that you are feeling suicidal because you’re worried they might be shocked or they might not understand.
But think of it this way: if you had a broken leg, you wouldn’t think twice about telling someone. You would expect them to get you the help you need. By telling a family member or friend how you feel and asking them to contact Pieta House, you are allowing them to help you. Wouldn’t you do the same for someone else if it were the other way around?
If you find it difficult to talk face to face, then send an email, a text message or a note. What’s important is that you share your suicidal feelings with someone.
Emotional pain is just as serious as physical pain. With the support you’ll get at Pieta House, you’ll start to heal. We’ll show you how to feel more hopeful about the future and help you to sort out the problems you’re experiencing now.
Let us help you.
