Get Help!

In light of the tragedies that we continue to face, we as humans need to learn to seek help before it is too late. Talk to someone, not just anybody, a professional. Most often your closest friends, even your family will not be skilled to help you in a time of a mental illness crisis. I know you want a familiar face and voice to care and recognize when you are hurting. While your loved ones may recognize your pain; If they haven’t been trained and because they are so close to you it is best that you see a therapist.

If you are in immediate danger please dial 911

Please don’t wait until it is too late. Please call a professional. It is not time to worry about what someone thinks about you. No one is perfect and has happy thoughts all the time. So get help!
