If you're struggling with thoughts of suicide, you are not alone. There are always people who can help. 6 free helplines are available in Canada for anyone experiencing suicidal thoughts. If you're feeling any of the following, reach out and talk to someone who understands and can help.

  • Making plans for ending your life
  • Feeling like you can't cope with the pain anymore
  • Losing your motivation to keep going
  • Feeling like you don't deserve to go on
  • Thinking you're going to feel this way forever
  • Looking up information about how to kill yourself
  • Not wanting to be alive anymore
  • A sense of finality, as if there is no other choice

Experiencing suicidal feelings is a response to intense emotional pain that feels impossible to escape from. It's not uncommon to feel that nothing can be solved when you're emotionally overwhelmed. However, with the right support, you can end your emotional suffering without having to end your life.

Even though things might feel hopeless, getting support from someone who cares can make a big difference. Speaking to a crisis counselor in Canada may help you see that there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel you are in right now.

If you are having thoughts of suicide today, consider contacting a helpline in Canada for free, confidential help.
