I saw this, and tweeted about it last night, but also wanted to link it here for posterity:

More suicide prevention hotlines than I’ve ever seen collected in one place.

This also serves as a good reminder of my birthday fundraiser for the AFSP, I’m in the US so that is what I would direct people who want to help me celebrate or say thank you for running this site over the years, but if you aren’t in the US, I totally get wanted to support something local for you as well, so here’s a list of suicide prevention resources all over the world. If you want to support my birthday wish to raise money for suicide prevention but do it in your own country, please do. Then come back and let me know that you did. That will mean as much as anyone donating or sharing my fundraiser.

For many, there is no possibility of the regular trip to the therapist office that we often imagine mental health care to be. We need more of these kinds of resources if we are going to make a dent in the large percentage of people who never get any treatment, and the more we can move to these types of tools, hopefully the more availability there is for more elaborate resources for those who need that as well.
