TalkLife is an online peer support community and not an emergency service. We’re not able to help with crisis situations. If you’re experiencing suicidal thoughts and you don’t feel in control, peer support isn’t the right option for you. 


Is your life in danger? If you’ve seriously harmed yourself or have immediate plans to do so, call emergency services or go straight to your nearest emergency department. Or ask someone else to call emergency services or take you to the hospital.

If you’re feeling hopeless, suicidal or can’t see a way forward, talking to someone who you don’t know could help. Trying to manage these feelings on your own can be frightening, confusing, and lonely. You don’t have to struggle on your own.
