Most importantly, if you or someone you love is thinking about suicide, PLEASE contact:  National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – staffed and available 24/7   1-800-273-8255

Other resources (I’m new so this will grow):

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention – a national non-profit dedicated to suicide prevention

American Psychological Association has a good primer on what depression is (and is not) that I found somewhat helpful to share with others

The National Institutes of Mental Health offers a comprehensive list of medications (by class) that I found really helpful

Friends and family often ask what they can do to support me- here’s a resource I wish I’d known about a long time ago since it’s often hard to verbalize what is needed at the time


What have you found helpful? I’m here to learn too!
