Don't Wait - Don't Hesitate - Call Now: Suicide and Crisis Hotlines

For many people who feel suicidal, there seems to be no other way out. Death describes their world at that moment and the strength of their suicidal feelings should not be under-estimated - they are real and powerful and immediate. There are no magic cures.

But it is also true that:

  • Suicide is often a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
  • Being gender variant or transgender is not a dead end!  There is a growing community of successful transgender people and allies. You do not have to take this journey by yourself.
  • When we are depressed, we tend to see things through the very narrow perspective of the present moment. A week or a month later, things may look completely different.
  • Most people who once thought about killing themselves are now glad to be alive. They say they didn't want to end their lives - they just wanted to stop the pain.

If you are feeling suicidal right now and you need someone to talk to, please consult a suicide or crisis hotline.
