Are You in Crisis?
Please do not suffer alone in silence. We highly recommend that you seek out advice and
support from people who are trained to help you in the way you need and deserve. If you
are a young person, seek help from an adult you trust. If they aren't listening, keep speaking
up until someone does. You deserve to be heard. Please don't give up!
We have compiled a list of various helping agencies who are available & equipped to help. Please reach out. We will continue to add to the list as we find more.
