We at the ICL recognize that now more than ever before, resources for those with mental health needs should be as familiar and easily accessible as possible to our patrons.
Here are a few resources for anyone who wants to learn more about their own mental health, as well as the mental health of others:
Seven Cups of Tea – The Q&A section of this website allows users to look up by category a wide variety of issues that other users are going/have gone through, and how others on the site have responded to them. This site is consistently monitored and maintained by mental health professionals.
Suicide Prevention Lifeline – This website offers a phone number, and many other resources, for those contemplating suicide. There are also web pages specifically available for Native Americans, LGBTQ individuals, veterans and young people.
Remember, reaching out when you or a loved one needs assistance is a sign of strength – not a weakness.
If you, or anyone you know, is considering suicide – or just needs someone to talk to – please pick up the phone and call: 1-800-273-8255
