I need immediate support.

Project LETS believes that peer support is the foundation of mental health care. We have multiple routes/ways you can access our services: 

[Virtual Options] You can:

  1. Send an email to: info@letserasethestigma.com describing your needs, and how a Peer Mental Health Advocate (PMHA) could best support you. We reply to all peer counseling inquires within 3 days. 
  2. Access our Peer Crisis Line (the bright orange box below) and send us a message. If our PMHAs are not immediately available, your message will be sent to our team, and we will reply within 24 hours. If you need an urgent reply, type "URGENT" in the subject line, and a PMHA will reply to you within 1 hour. 
  3. Search through our PMHAs bios/photos, and select one you'd like to work with! If making a match on your own is too difficult, don't worry, we can always make one for you.

I (or someone I know) attempted suicide.

After an attempt, one of the most powerful things to know is that you are not alone. You may have never felt this way before— but you are not the only one who has felt the way you do now. Knowing how others have made it through may help you learn new ways to heal. 

I need help supporting a friend.

The important part of helping your friend is to understand that you are there to offer support but it is up to your friend to decide how they are going to get it. If your friend does not want help, then be patient. Perhaps remind them of their options now and then, but try not to pressure them. If you are worried about their safety or that they are going to hurt themselves somehow, then you need to let someone else know.
