HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — This pandemic has been tough for many of us. Some people have reached out to suicide prevention helplines to hold out hope.
The Crisis Services of North Alabama reports an increase in suicide-related calls since April. Although more people are outside since the 'Safer at Home' order went into effect, the call center still reports a slight increase in calls by a couple hundred.
Folks say for those who feel all hope is lost; there's still help for you.
"Often it'll be just one more thing. 'I just can't bear it, and then I just snap'. And so we need to find out what is that 'one more thing'. What is it that you finally just go to the point that you can't bear it. Please tell me and for me to just sit and listen," says Clinical Director of the Crisis Services of North Alabama, Connie Kane.
If you, or anyone you know is in need of suicide crisis prevention, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1(800)-273-TALK.
