When there’s no hope left it’s important to get help
Sometimes we feel hopeless, like things won’t ever get better. This can be related to life events you’ve gone through or a mental illness. Maybe you don’t know why you’re feeling this way but something just isn’t right.
If you or someone you know is ending their life right now call 000 and request an ambulance or visit your local hospital’s emergency department.
