Self-help resources

Here are some self-help resources for you to look at from someone who suffers from mental illness, as well as some external resources.

Although I don’t have a lot of resources yet, I’m hoping that some of these things will help at least someone.
If you don’t find what you’re looking for, I would really appreciate if you would take a moment to contact me with some suggestions. You can also do so if you feel the need to talk to someone; although I cannot promise that I’ll always be able to reply quickly, I’ll do my best to get back to you soon.

I’m planning to add much more soon.

  • Coping skills
    Some of the techniques I use to deal with various situations.
    Both for people in general, and for those suffering with mental illness.
  • Awareness
    Learn more about mental illness and other things. Knowledge is important!
    At the very least you can learn about my experiences.
    If you are mentally ill yourself, you can know that you’re not alone; there are plenty of people out there who are suffering with mental illness.
  • Feeling suicidal?
    You’re not alone. I’ve been there.
    Just check out my suicidal thoughts
    If you read through my site, you’ll notice I’ve also attempted suicide multiple times.
    But now I regret it, just as most people who have lived after attempting suicide regret it.
    Often, you can resolve the things that are upsetting you so greatly. There is hope, really! Don’t give up.
    Please give yourself some more time. Talk to someone! Or you can read these:

    National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
    “No matter what problems you are dealing with, we want to help you find a reason to keep living. By calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7.
