A crisis can hit anyone at any time. The sense of hopelessness and despair at the height of a crisis can cause people to contemplate suicide as a way to escape their emotional pain.

However, people can and do recover from this difficult period, especially when there is strong support from the people around them. Some people may also need professional support to help them through a crisis.

If YOU are in some form of crisis or feeling suicidal, then contact someone and let them know about it.

If someone you know is going through a hard time, do know that you are already helping just by being there for the person! Find out more about helping someone in crisis.

Care & Share $1-For-$1 Matching Donation Extended till March 2016

SOS is grateful to be part of this initiative. The government will give us $1 for every $1 donated to us from now till 31 March 2016. However, this important boost to our funding can only work with the generosity of the community.
