Growing up is hard to do. Being a teenager is tough. There are a lot of pressures and a lot of things going on in life. There can be pressures and situations that seem more than you can handle, making it feel like there is no way out. Sometimes it seems like it situations will never end… like things will never change.
HANG ON. THERE IS HOPE.
Visiting this site acknowledges you understand this pressure, stressful thoughts and feelings. It lets you know you are not alone. Lots of people think about suicide at one time or another in their lives. It isn’t that they want to die; they just want to stop feeling the way they feel. It’s a choice that lasts forever, in response to problems that don’t. No matter how bad things seem, tomorrow holds new promise, new options and new paths. We understand… you just want to stop feeling miserable, hopeless, helpless and trapped. No matter how bad the situation and feelings are, it can be overcome.

However, maybe if you reach out, someone will listen and guide you to help and hope so that it doesn’t have to be this way.
