If you are feeling suicidal now you may be feeling very alone, lost, frightened, confused. You may be feeling there is no other way out of your problem, difficulties, worries, feelings, or whatever reason you are contemplating taking your life.
Many young people find it difficult to talk to adults; some do not trust them and often young people feel older people just do not understand. Considering the difficulties some young people face when talking to adults there are very few opportunities to contact alternative services. Here at Y2Y we provide that alternative. Our helpline staff are all young people themselves who have been specially trained to help.
Talking about how you feel and being listened to can help you find a way through your feelings. It’s really important that you talk to someone if you are feeling suicidal. We are here 24 hours a day for you to talk to and if you don’t get through the first time, please try again until you do.
