Mental health and suicide prevention

Recently, in a middle school -level health class that I assist in from time to time, two wonderful speakers from the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) branch in Waukesha (Wisconsin) presented on the topics of mental health and suicide prevention. They shared with the class a number of valuable resources that youth and teens can turn to for help or simply to get some questions answered.

I, in turn, am sharing those resources here. Feel free to bookmark this page and share it with others, and never be afraid to seek help. Know that you are never alone. A special thanks to NAMI Waukesha for sharing these resources.

If you're in a crisis:
  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255, or text 839863
  • The Center for Suicide Awareness: Text "HOPELINE" to 741741
Web sites:
  • The Virtual Hopebox
  • Headspace
  • Calm
  • My3
