Need help urgently or feeling suicidal? | The Proud Trust

There are people out there who will not judge your or argue with you or tell you that you are wrong to feel the way you do. There are people who can help and will really listen to you – please find on one of them.

Feeling suicidal is not a direct result of being LGBT. Discrimination play a large role in some people feeling inferior and may lead to depression and suicidal thoughts. Most people who are feeling depressed or desperate enough to consider suicide give clues to how they’re feeling.
