CRISIS HELP

BECAUSE right now matters

If you are facing a crisis, whether it is to kill yourself or use again, here is some direct advice.
  • Shut it down — Sleep (no overdosing). Can’t sleep? Cold shower or face in ice-water (30 seconds and repeat).* This is a reset button. It slows everything way down.
     

  • No Important Decisions — Especially deciding to die. Do not panic. Ignore thoughts that you don’t care if you die. Stop drugs and alcohol.
     

  • Make Eye Contact — A difficult but powerful pain reliever. Look in their eyes and say “Can you help me get out of my head?” Try video chat. Keep trying until you find someone.
     

  • Do whatever it takes — contact whomever you can for help and do whatever to be safe. Now matters. You are worth it.
