September 10th is International Suicide Prevention day.
If you need to hear the following, know that you are never alone, no matter how undeserving you feel. Also, there are compassionate and skilled people ready and able to listen and help, without judgment. That goes tomorrow, next year, or right now… in this moment.
Of the Greater Montreal area Crisis Centers, the West Island Crisis Centre is one of the very best. Telephone and mobile staff are available 24/7. Good people there understand those who find themselves anxious, overwhelmed, sad, and/or suicidal.
If you, or someone you care for experiences such difficulties and live on the Montreal West Island, please don’t hesitate to contact them at 514‑684‑6160.
Otherwise, know that there is a multitude of Crisis Centres throughout Québec and your area. It’s a good idea to find and keep their number handy. – cPaul
