I know how overwhelming it can feel when you're having a tough time. I offer clients a space that is non-judgemental and empathetic whilst navigating these times together.

If you are dead it will have a big impact on you're friends and family and people who took the time to meet you because they developed that trust with you and know who you are the most so when you aren't there anymore they feel sad because of that sorrow they have been left with.

Yes it would. Although that can be incredibly hard to see if you are struggling with depression or a mood disorder. This can include anyone from friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, anyone you see regularly, friends of family, family of friends! Not to mention those involved in your death (i.e. police, ambulance, funeral services). As someone who has lived in a small community I know how much of a ripple effect a death can have on people.

If you're dead it will definitely have a huge impact on the people around you;your family,your friends,the people that know you. You may not think that the world needs you but it does.For you are unique like no one has ever been before or will come after.No one can say your piece or shine your light or take your place.If you are not there to shine your light who knows how many travellers will lose their way as they pass by your empty space in the darkness? But don't feel guilty for feeling suicidal,because the feeling of guilt will make it more worse for you.It's not your fault that you feel suicidal or low.Please reach out for help as soon as possible.Talk to somebody about your feelings.Call the suicide helpline.You deserve help,you deserve to be here,this world needs you!

Yes. No matter how alone you feel there is someone out there loving you, someone that might not be able to express these feelings in a way you can see, but they love you.

Yes. The simple answer is yes, even if you think not. I may not know anything about you but it would sadden me to see the world lose another wonderful person who has so much to give to this world. Yes, this shows you are suffering and it's okay. It's okay to feel like this, and it's okay to want to do something like this. But people love and care for you and would be devastated if you did, myself included. Now I urge you to get help or even talk to someone here. I hope you understand how much I care about you.

Yes it would. You have so many people out there that love you. Don't give up because you are wonderful! We're always here to help you. Reach out to someone you trust and talk to them about your feelings. If you don't have anyone we will always be glad to help in any way we can. You are important and you matter. You are loved by so many people in this world. I know times can be hard, but it will get better. You just have to keep pushing through and make yourself happy. Don't worry about others. Make yourself happy.

No matter what you think, if you died, it will most definitely affect not only your family, but also your friends and peers. It might even affect people you don't know. I watch the news every morning, and it always makes me very sad to see that someone died or committed suicide. Death is such a hard force, it's hard to understand it, but it's permanent, and you can't undo death, so your family would never see you again if you died. No matter what it seems like, this would affect them very greatly. It hurts to know someone has died.
