Depression Support Center Depression Support Center

We hope that you will find a supportive and helpful community here at CafeMom. But sometimes the support of your peers is not enough, and you need to speak to a caring person who is trained to help.

If you feel really badly and need someone to talk to immediately, please use these resources right away:

1. Call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). This hotline is staffed by trained counselors and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

2. Visit The Suicide Prevention Lifeline website for helpful information, links, and crisis center locations.

3. Another website you may find helpful: Metanoia.

4. For information and help regarding self-harm and self-injury, please visit SAFE Alternatives.

Our Member Resources page can point you toward organizations to help you with specific needs.

 

We hope you find the help you need, and we're glad you're a part of CafeMom.

Quoting single_and_preg:

I know what you mean....I am always careful about what i say to my therapist, even though i know id never kill myself, but if i mention  anything about it, i know she will call the police.

FYI.... therapists, teachers, doctors, and a host of others are mandated reporters.  Meaning that they are required by law to report someone talking about suicide or homicide, and also child abuse and elder abuse.

Yes... but they don't have to call the police.  I am a teacher and I have had to do it many times for suicidal students (ironically, usually boys that I notice something is just "off").  I call the county mental health.  The police are not helpful... and usually leave the person feeling betrayed.  Where mental health know how to help and what to do next.
