Suicide.Org

suicideorgSuicide.org explains that suicide is never the answer, but getting help IS the answer.

Ran by Kevin Caruso, Suicide.org’s mission is to prevent suicides, support suicide survivors, and educate the public about suicide.

Suicide.org conducts extensive work online and offline to further its mission of suicide prevention, awareness, and support.  We also run an online suicide survivors’ forum, which provides a safe place for suicide survivors to receive help.

And we work to remember and honor the angels who die by suicide in as many ways as we can, including online memorials.

And we work to spread awareness about suicide in as many ways as possible.

Offline, we give presentations about suicide, run suicide awareness campaigns, help schools establish effective suicide prevention and anti-bullying strategies, visit and call suicide survivors, and assist suicidal individuals.

 

Minds Like Ours (MILO)

minds like oursA mental health support community (abbreviated MILO) for those 1 in 4 living with these kinds of disorders. Of course, even 1 of a million is 1 too many, but at least there is help.

Raise awareness of mental health issues with others–remind people that there are many more people that are good productive citizens who have mental health problems than there are people who are bad, nonproductive citizens!  You can take part in competitions inside MILO, unite with others, and support others like you who need to be supported.  Don’t be in it alone!

They have forums, helplines, blogs, volunteer and shop in their store. Help others and help yourself!

7 Cups of Tea

7 cups of teaIt is important to have someone to listen to you sometimes.  Someone to truly listen to you–and not judge you and to not know your past history or hangups.  Some people just need someone to listen to them, period, and not talk at all.  It is important to have someone to listen back.  I have been there myself!

 With 7 Cups of Tea, listeners are trained in Active Listening. Some of the listeners are free, some charge a nominal fee for their service.  Nominal from what I have seen is from .50 USD down to .003 USD per minute.

 At present they are doing over 100 call and chat requests a day. They currently work with a number of organizations like NAMI, Active Minds, the International Bipolar Foundation and several others.

If you feel you have no one to talk to, here you are.  Someone to listen to you, someone who will definitely hear what you have to say.

Military Pathways Mental Health Screening

military pathwaysBeing in the military alone can be severely stressful.  Adding a family, or a war, or threat of war to the equation definitely makes it much more stressful.  This website is tied in with the United States Department of Defense and the nonprofit organization, Screening for Mental Health, who are trying to find via assessments if a military man or woman is experiencing traumatic events.

For instance, these assessments will help a person find out whether or not they might have some common mental health issues including, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, alcohol problems and more. Of course, just as with Psych Central, the screening will not provide a diagnosis – for that you need to see your own professional.   It will help point you towards a direction, tell you what you might have and where best you can seek assistance.

Best of all, your screening can be anonymous.  No one will come up and show your results and say this is Dr. Clyde’s results.  This will definitely help you if you feel you need the help.  Don’t wait any longer!

Mirror, Mirror Eating Disorders

mirror mirrorUpfront, this website is not a website that is for a person who needs a Doctor who would come and tell you what to do with your Eating Disorder or whether you even have an Eating Disorder.  However; that being said, this website is well worth it’s weight (no pun intended) as it understands and appreciates the suffering and shame you might be going through.

Started back in 1997 by Colleen Thompson, when she was having an eating disorder issue, she wanted to educate herself and provide support to herself and others who need assistance from the eating disorder.  Mirror, Mirror even asks that if you do not find the information on their website that pertains to you that you can email them and they will either try to include the information or direct you to a website or to somewhere where the information can be found.

With any kind of disorder people are suffering from, there are two things:  people don’t want to have it (of course), and people want to know they are not suffering alone.  This site helps those who suffer from Eating Disorders to alleviate the later, and hopefully the former.

Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women

Domestic abuse hotlineThe DAHMW is a nonprofit organization that helps men and women who are being abused by their spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends.  Their mission is to provide crisis intervention and support services to those who are abused and to help find a way to stop domestic violence from happening in the first place.

First founded in 2000, it offers help to heterosexual as well as same-sex victims, because violence knows no boundaries and is not a respecter of person, race, nationality or creed.  Their main specialization is to men who are abused by their women counterparts, however; as mentioned, no one is turned away from respect and support.

There is also a mailing list and a toll-free domestic violence hotline.  If you are being abused, please be sure to cover your tracks and call today!  Don’t hide in shame!

1 in 6

you are not alone1 in 6 men have experienced sexually abusive issues by the age of 18.  Why does this have to happen?  This website (and yours truly) thinks that this number is probably a low estimate, considering many people do not report their sexual abuse issues.  If you are that 1 in 6, or that 2 in 6, or whatever–remember, and keep this in mind–you are not alone.  This site, and many others will help you remember this and keep supporting you along the way.

There is Online Counseling, Support and Therapy for you, if needed, as well as newsletters, jobs, internships and volunteers.  You do not have to suffer alone.  You are not 1 against the world–you are 1 with others, who need each other.  Don’t be alone anymore.
