You're having suicidal thoughts?
•    Someone who is having suicidal thoughts is suffering and does not want to die. What they want is to stop their suffering. If you’re thinking of suicide, it’s because:
- Your suffering is intolerable
- You don’t know how to ease your suffering
- Ending your life seems like the only way out
- Your suffering is preventing you from thinking of other possible solutions
- You need help and support to find solutions

•    Your suffering and pain are like a big, dark cloud that blinds you and prevents you from seeing solutions to your problems.

•    Your suffering may make you feel as though you’re in a long tunnel with no way out. But remember that there’s always a way out and there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. There are always other solutions and other ways to alleviate your suffering.

•    If you are having suicidal thoughts, it’s crucial to talk about them. Asking for help and talking about what you’re going through can help you look at your problems in another light, come up with solutions you hadn’t thought of, and feel better.

•    You can talk to an adult family member whom you trust, a professional at school, the CLSC or the youth centre, or you can call Tel-jeunes or the Centre for Suicide Prevention (1-866-277-3553).

•    Remember that difficult situations are temporary and can always be resolved, whereas suicide is a permanent and irreversible act.

•    It’s important to try and resolve your problems one at a time, step by step and to give yourself the time to do so. By addressing them one at a time, you can make headway and gradually regain hope much faster than if you tried to resolve everything at once.
