As those of us feeling deeply affected by the election results walk through our grief, I want to remind you that you are loved and that you are worth your life. Please stay. If you're hurting, afraid, or just need someone to talk to, please reach out. Someone will reach back.
Keep these resources with you. You never know when you or someone you know might need them:
You can reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, Trans Lifeline at 877-565-8860 (U.S.) or 877-330-6366 (Canada), or The Trevor Project at 866-488-7386. If you’d like to talk to a peer, warmline.org contains links to warmlines in every state. If you don't like the phone, check out Lifeline Crisis Chat or you can reach Crisis Text Line by texting START to 741741. If you're not in the U.S., click here for a link to crisis centers around the world.
