In a Crisis

A crisis can come about for many different reasons. Sometimes it can happen for no clear reason at all. It is a mental health crisis if you or a loved one is:

  • Talking or thinking about harming or killing oneself or others
  • Seeking access to firearms, pills, or other ways to kill oneself
  • Talking or writing about death, dying, or killing oneself
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Very angry or looking for revenge
  • Acting recklessly or doing risky activities
  • Feeling trapped, like there’s no way out
  • Increasing alcohol or drug use
  • Pulling away from friends and family
  • Feeling worried or irritated
  • Having trouble sleeping or sleeping all the time
