What To Do In a Crisis
www.nami.org - National Alliance on Mental Illness
"When you live with a mental health condition, your brain and body often send you a message that makes you feel like you are in a crisis situation. But sometimes you may find yourself in a dangerous situation. For our purposes here, a crisis might mean getting in trouble with the law or injuring yourself accidentally or on purpose. It's also a crisis situation if you find yourself developing a plan to take your own life or are considering hurting others." - See more here.
