If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, then please call 911 or your local equivalent (112 in most European and Asian countries).

If you need less urgent help, there are many crisis and support lines that can give help and support to those feeling suicidal and those worried about someone else.

A detailed directory can be found on the Find A Helpline site. Some of these resources are listed below.
