Hi there, welcome to Ask Alex.  

From what you’ve said, we would be really worried about you, as it sounds like you’re in a difficult place at the moment.  

You can call 999 or 112 to speak to a medical professional who will be able to get you the help and support you need to keep you safe.  

There are services who are there to help you through this difficult time, such as Pieta House who have a free 24/7 crisis helpline: phone 1800 247 247 or Text HELP to 51444.  The Samaritans also offer a free 24/7 helpline by phoning 116 123.  Both services are trained to support people experiencing suicidal thoughts and self-harm.  

It’s really important that we are able to share how we are feeling with the people we love and trust.  You say that you have people that you love, who would be really supportive of how you are feeling at the moment, and get you the help that you need.  

However, if you feel that you cannot talk to your loved ones just now, please get in touch with our 24-hour listening service, by freephone at 1800 66 66 66 or through LiveChat at You can talk to us without judgement, and we can help you explore your options and talk through what is going on for you.
