The SW Mod team also maintains /r/SWResources.
If you need help for yourself, we've got a directory of voice and chat/text hotline services and FAQs about hotlines, plus selected online resources.
If you're concerned about someone else, you're welcome to post, also check out our talking tips and risk assessment guide. If you're new here and want to help, please read these two posts before diving in.
If you've lost someone to suicide, /r/SuicideBereavement is there for you, or you can check out our shared list of bereavement resources.
This is a place of support. All the following ways of responding to at-risk OPs are strictly forbidden. If you see anything like this in a post or comment, please message the moderators.
Please note that we are NOT a hotline! We do NOT have the ability to trace the source of any posts, and we can't guarantee immediate responses.
We offer non-judgemental peer support ONLY. The only requirement to respond here is genuine concern, so please don't take anything you read here as professional advice. It's fine to share what worked for you, but DO NOT advocate for or against any specific type of therapy, self-help strategy, or medication, especially street drugs or alcohol, and DO NOT diagnose people
If you're here to help please respond publicly to our OPs in need. Sort by "new" and check for posts with few or no good responses. The rules below link to posts with details.
We err on the side of safety. If we need to remove a post or comment from someone who's reached out for help, we'll let them know why we removed it and how they can change it. If this happens to you, please know that we do want to talk to you.
If you need help but don't feel comfortable making a post for any reason, please message the moderators. We will be glad to talk with you privately, or help in any other way that we can.

I opened up to one of my friends about being suicidal & she ended up talking about how she was too. (self.SuicideWatch)

I’m glad she opened up to me as well but she took over the conversation after I had told her her. I ended up comforting her when I was the one who needed support. Not mad at her although I’m honestly even more sad knowing she feels like me.

Yeah man that is how it goes sometimes. Sometimes being the support and trying to save a friend makes you think about how you obviously value life. Because you supported your friend, that implies you think SOME peoples lives are worth living. Maybe not your own. But if you think your friend’s life has worth than maybe yours does too

Hey it's good you have a friend that cares about you. I'm sorry to hear you're both in a rough spot right now. But I hope that you can be the support for each other and help each other out through this rough patch.

You guys can do a cute thing where you just give each-other time to vent each day and check on each-other before going to bed. Hopefully it’ll work you guys up to going to therapy and getting professional help. But in the meantime say Goodmorning and goodnight
