You have the right to seek help and support for how you are feeling and the thoughts you are experiencing. Have you spoken to your family about your suicidal thoughts? If you feel that you cannot talk to anyone in your family, do you have another adult in your life that you trust and can talk to? This adult can be an aunt, uncle, teacher, or a school counsellor. It is your parents’ and other adults’ responsibility to make sure you get the help and support you need and deserve. You also have a right to professional help, like talking to your doctor or a counsellor, to share your feelings and thoughts about suicide.
