    Hey Lily,

    Thanks for joining our community and coming to us for help. My name is Monsoon and I’m one of the digital support mentors at Ditch the Label, and I’m here to give advice and support to those who reach out to us.

    I noticed that you said you're struggling to get over your suicidal thoughts
    and I'm wondering if you are in crisis and need support. Can I ask, do you plan to take your own life? It is okay to feel like this, but remember that feelings can change, and this feeling may pass. We really want to let you know that you are not alone. We support Monday - Friday, 9am - 5.30pm (BST) via our community https://www.ditchthelabel.org/community/ and our email here, and there are more options below:
    • UK: The Samaritans - 116 123 (This is a 24/7 phone service you can ring when you are in crisis and need someone to talk to)
    • USA: NSPL - 1-800-273-8255 (This is a 24/7 phone service you can ring when you are in crisis and need someone to talk to)
    • This link will give you a list of all crisis lines worldwide: https://www.befrienders.org
    • There's an app I can recommend called Stay Alive https://www.prevent-suicide.org.uk/f...tay-alive-app/ - it has safety plans to keep you safe and loads of info.
    • You can also call your doctor or go to any emergency department and ask for help.
    I hope to hear back from you soon so you can let us know how you are doing. We care about you here at Ditch the Label, and once we know you are safe, we can help you more with your situation.
