Answer:

I'm so sorry to hear of your current status and thoughts of suicide. I'm afraid NetWellness experts do not provide emergency services. However, as suicide is often a sign of extreme distress but also one that can be treated, I would strongly encourage you to do one or more of the following things as soon as possible:

1. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 (website: http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/help/default.aspx), which is free, confidential and staffed by trained counselors who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2. Call or go to your local hospital emergency room.

3. If you are in treatment, call your mental health professional.

Take good care.
