At what point is bad mental health considered an emergency? how do I know if I'm "ill enough" to call a more urgent number instead of waiting for my appointment months from now?

      You can always call or text a number. If you're thinking about wanting to, then you're "ill enough". People who are coping okay don't think about calling a hotline ๐Ÿ’œ you deserve to be heard, to be supported. Don't wait. You deserve help *now* ๐Ÿ’œ

      You can always reach out for help. Some numbers you can call / text include: 988 (suicide hotline) 741741 (support text) 911 On occasion people have had negative experiences on those lines though, but its worth a shot. If you have a support system, such as friends and family, you should confide in them. I hope you get the help you need, stay safe.

      I texted a hotline once and all they wanted to know was how much i was at risk of suicide and it made me feel invalid for reaching out. Like i wasn't sick enough to need help. Everyone is allowed to reach out for help. That includes you

      You can call Crises anytime you feel like it's an emergency
