What can I say when asking for support?

Reach Out

When you get a chance can you contact me? I feel really alone and could use some support.

Contact a loved one

I don’t want to die, but I don't know how to live. Talking with you may help me feel safe. Are you free to talk?

Express your feelings

This is really hard for me to say, but I’m having painful thoughts and it might help to talk. Are you free?

Check -In

I’m struggling right now and just need to talk to someone — can we chat?
