Please use the below link to find a mental health provider close to you.

If you feel suicidal / unstable, you need to find an inpatient facility (the psychiatric unit of a hospital).

An outpatient facility has programs/group therapy for multiple mental disorders where you attend for certain amount hours during the week.  It is considered partial hospitalization.

Please do not be afraid, whether it is help me-depression, help me-suicide, help me-etc., please reach out.  It is crucial to your health-mental.  Inside if you hear that voice whispering “help me” listen to it.

In time, feeling consistently depressed can lead you to detachment, diminish that instinct to live, and lead to suicidal thoughts / tendency.  It is a healthy decision to learn how to cope and find your way to feeling better.  Make that call.
