  1. People in these conditions also need to know that they’re loved and that help is always available nearby. Close relatives and friends could make the situation easier if they made it more clearer. It’s hard to say, but the certainty is that someone’s suicide doesn’t end the pain, it just transfers it to someone else. ❤️

  2. Awesome! Is this 988 across the US we do need it in state NY. I think it’s better calling 911. Thank you USA Today bringing this information out.
