If you have the urge: To kill yourself right now then please have a friend or family member take you to the nearest emergency room. You can 911 to be transported to an er if needed. You can also use national suicide hotlines 24/7 at 1-800-suicide (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273 – talk (1-800-273-8255). It can seem like you have no other options beside suicide but as you get help the other options will be more apparent.
