Coping with Suicidal Thoughts

My interest in suicide prevention rose out of my own struggles with suicide and the suicides of people close to me. I realized that there were very few books or websites that spoke directly to the agony of the suicidal person, so I decided to create one. In the process, I learned that people become suicidal when they are experiencing extreme pain that seems unbearable. Whatever the source of their pain, the person may feel overwhelmed and no longer able to cope. As a result, they may see suicide as the only way to end their pain.

The resources below offer other options that will allow a person to survive their suicidal crisis.
