Talk to someone you trust

If you have a friend or a family member you trust, tell them what is going on and how it makes you feel. Talking to someone else can help you understand what is happening to you. They may also be able to help you contact support services and/or to make a Crisis Plan (more details on making a Crisis Plan).
