because we are only volunteers and not trained to take chats for suicidal behavior, its best to have you to visit www.suicide.org for a list of resources. also, these numbers are availible for chat if you are in need or know someone who is. 1) Call 911 2) 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) Text Telephone: 1-800-799-4TTY (1-800-799-4889) Military Veterans Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-TALK (Press 1) Suicide Hotline in Spanish: 1-800-273-TALK (Press 2) LGBT Youth Suicide Hotline: 1-866-4-U-TREVOR

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this; but based off what I can try to understand, having a safe non-judgmental chat-room would be good for this.

Writing your feelings down on a piece of paper and then ripping/burning the paper to release tension

There is the crisis text line, which is text based. Beyond that every area has it's own phone line to call.

having a suicide chat room would be a great idea, as most of the time what cause one to lead up to the point of committing suicide is going to all their dark phases of life and not having anyone to talk with or share no form of empathy with them and since 7cups is all about providing active listening to person that need a listening ears I will strongly agree on the suicide chat room.

If you feel like committing suicide you should tell an adult or call the suicide hotline, because there is always someone that cares about you. You just have to look for them.

I think county mental health systems are great resources for people who think about suicide. It is not an in-the-moment resource, but when it comes to learning to manage and change suicidal thoughts long-term, counties often have lower cost mental health help available.

Suicide is a tricky thing. You have to be patient and supportive to the person. You also have to be positive with that person cause at that person at that moment will think all the negative things. If it escalates get the person to call a hotline or call the authorities to get to them.

I don't know what resources would be good for a suicide chat room. People who commit suicide rarely tell anyone they are going to do it and if someone is going to do it they will find a way.

For people who are looking to seek help in the suicide chatroom. they need a light at the end of their tunnel of despair which can be a friend or simply just someone who simply cares also the suicide hotline is always available to anyone who may need it.

I do think that they need people who will listen, they should be in a stress free environment... no?

IĀ“ve had an experience more than once about suicide and suicidal thoughts.. IĀ“m willing to help people that are in the same situation, and I know how it feels when thereĀ“s nobody you could share your thoughts with. It might be fears of peopleĀ“s reaction about your thoughts. ThatĀ“s why IĀ“m here to help you!

7 Cups Of Tea isn't a good resource, but suicidepreventionlifeline.org, crisischat.org, and imalive.org are some good resources for online live chats. If you want to talk over the phone, the suicide prevention lifeline number is: 1-800-273-TALK or 1-800-SUICIDE.

Some good resources could be writing. Writing is a good way to let go and pour out how you feel and then if you want to you can rip it up and throw it away.

The Audio version of the book-The power of positive thinking by Norman Vincent Peale . The reason I suggest Audio is so the individual can play easily without the mind power and composure needed to read the hard copy

People who want to end their lives often tend to use pills, knives anything sharp that can cut their skin. They can also think about drinking soap or even clorox and other chemical products.

I'm not sure. People who want to kill themselves, should take a moment to think, reflect, relax, and get help.

Suicide Hotline, and perhaps this; https://www.afsp.org/preventing-suicide . There they will find helpful resources and other such things.

The number 1-800-273-8255 or www.suicide.org. Hotline numbers and websites. Supportive listeners who have strong experience in this particular area, links to their pages. And maybe a link to websites on how to find a professional in your area, or how to talk to your parents about suicide.

I think some great resources would include games that involve all the senses- sometimes drawing or simple games with music are great for calming the mind and relieving tension so one can open up and talk a bit about what's going on in life.
