Are you really struggling? Do you need immediate help?
Remember: it is not weak to ask for help. The opposite is true. Asking for help is a courageous thing to do. We dedicate ourselves to helping others, but we are human and sometimes we need help. It’s a sign of strength to ask for help. So if you’re struggling, please reach out.
Here are some resources:
- If you are suicidal or believe yourself to be in imminent danger, please call 911 or your local emergency number.
- Contact a friend or a colleague
- If your agency has a Peer Support Team, or similar, you could connect them
- Tema Conter has a thorough list of resources for those in Canada or the US
