These suicide prevention resources are available for anyone in need

New York City has set up a number of resources for depressed and suicidal citizens. A 311 operator can help connect a person in need to an appropriate, local psychiatrist. And NYC Well — the city’s free and confidential hotline — is a source of mental or substance abuse help for anyone, 24 hours a day. NYC Well can provide treatment referrals over the phone, through its online chat or via text. The service provides crisis counseling, peer support and professional help in over 200 languages. The service will even follow up “to check that you have connected to care and it is working for you.”
