There are 10 suicide hotlines (crisis lines or helplines) in New Zealand that can help. If you're not sure what suicidal thoughts look like, they might look like any of the following:
A suicidal crisis is a normal response to very severe psychological pain that won't go away. You may be at a point where you're struggling to find the strength to get through one more day. It may not seem like it, but there is hope. You can heal your pain without ending your life.
