Get some help: Truly feeling suicidal is a serious problem that should be addressed immediately. When this happens get help at once by going to the emergency room, or calling 911 or a crisis line. We all have periods of happiness and sadness. But, if serious depression or suicidal thoughts occur get help immediately.
