    As pretty much everyone who has dealt with long-term severe depression knows, sometimes timely help or intervention can be the difference between going to bed and attempting suicide. Support, professional help, and access to mental health services can sometimes all maks the difference between life and death for a severely depressed person.

    Post suicide hotlines from your country, state, or city in this thread. Also, if anyone would like to talk about their mental health, we have a forum specifically dedicated to that called the Survivor's Circle:

    Your contribution to this thread is much appreciated! Let's make it clear that any RFers with mental health issues are not alone.

    This is from Mental health helplines

    'If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs help now, call triple zero (000). You can also call  Lifeline  on 13 11 14 — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.'

    It also lists other relevant services for people in Australia.

    I get "You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action."

    Is that a DIR? Seems not to be on the list of DIRs.

    It's a private forum, which members can view and post in via the software as they can DIRs.

    I can add you to the Survivor's Circle if you have or have had a mental health issue and would like to join.

    I'm early retired because of severe depression. So, yes, I'd like to join.

    Added. If it doesn't work right away, then the software is updating and should let you access it within an hour or so.
