Sometimes life feels overwhelming and hopelessness grows. Depression and anxiety can become almost more than a person can handle. These feelings sometimes become difficult to bear and you just want an escape from the pain. Sometimes that desire for relief may cause you to consider harming yourself or someone else.

If you are currently thinking of taking your own life or that of someone else, the staff at Compass wants you to know you are not alone. We encourage you to go to your nearest emergency room and tell them you need to talk to the psychiatrist on call. You can also call 911 to get help to you quickly.

For support during dark times, please call the crisis intervention line at 988 or  502-589-4313 or 800-221-0446 or visit https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.

If you are concerned that your child or teen might hurt themselves or others, you can call the child crisis line at 502-589-8070 or 800-432-4510.
