Crisis Support

Crisis mental health & suicide prevention organisations

If you are in crisis please note that I am not a medical professional.  Please seek professional medical help and support for your own benefit and safety.  This is a limited list of some of the support services that are available for people in the UK, Netherlands, and the US.  In addition, Befrienders is a web search for support services listed by country and Wikipedia has a list of international emergency numbers and crisis support helplines.
