If you are feeling suicidal, you are not alone.  Many people have thoughts of suicide at various times in their lives. People who think of killing themselves are usually wanting to stop an unbearable emotional pain.

The important thing is that you get the support you need
to not act on your thoughts of killing yourself.  Suicidal thoughts and feelings are usually temporary.  Although it may not feel like it at the time, the suicidal thoughts and feelings will eventually lessen or pass altogether.
