Mental Health & Money Advice
Clear, practical advice and support for people experiencing issues with mental health and money.
Suicide is the act of intentionally ending your life. If you’re reading this because you have, or have had, thoughts about taking your own life, it’s important you ask someone for help. It’s probably difficult for you to see at this time, but you’re not alone and not beyond help. Many people who have had suicidal thoughts say they were so overwhelmed by negative feelings they felt they had no other option. However, with support and treatment were able to allow the negative feelings to pass.
