Mental Health Help

I've written about depression and Mental Health issues on many 
occasions.  This is a subject that I feel strongly about.  I do not 
think that it gets the recognition that it should, causing years 
of stigma on the subject.  

On this page, you will find my latest posts on Depression, 
Mental Health and where to find help.  Check back often for new 
information.  I will do my best to update this as often as I can.

Click on the title below and it will take you to the actual post. 

If you have contact information on this important subject that you 
would like to see added to this page please Contact me using 
the Contact Tab at the top of the page and I will look 
into adding it. 

*I have no professional training with mental health issues. What you read here is based on my personal experiences or from my own research.   

The Suicide Prevention Hotline in the US, available 24/7, is 988.  If you have any problem with this #, please dial the old # 1-800-273-8255. 

A terrific website on this can be found HERE.

The Samaritans Helpline number when dialed from the UK is simply 116123 (no prefix). 

There is a site specifically to help our veterans.  Find that site HERE.

Is talking to someone too much for you?  It was for me in the past.  There is a Crisis Text Line.  Text 741741 and you can text with a counselor.

Want to do an online chat?  There’s a site for that too.  Find it HERE.

You can even TWEET with a crisis counselor at @800273TALK on Twitter.

HERE is a link to many international phone #’s for Suicide Prevention.

This is a British number to help Children in crisis.  08001111

You don’t need to be experiencing a crisis to contact a crisis hotline. At most of these hotlines, the volunteers and counselors who answer calls, texts and chat messages are trained to help someone in crisis. But you can also reach out if you’re feeling sad, anxious or stressed and don’t know where to turn. 

These hotlines also serve friends, family members and loved ones of someone who is experiencing a mental health crisis, domestic violence, abuse, addiction and many other issues. 

Even if someone at a crisis hotline cannot help you with your specific needs, they can point you to the right resources that can. No one will ever make you feel bad for trying to get help, and no concern is too trivial or small. If it feels hard for you to manage, it’s worth reaching out.

A book that was highly recommended to me is:  Troubled Minds–Mental Illness and the Church’s Mission by Amy Simpson.
