Dulcinea's Insight

  • Don’t be ashamed for feeling the way you do. People who work at crisis centers are there to help you, not judge you. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness.
  • Usually, there are warning signs that a person has suicidal tendencies. It’s always better to get someone help before he’s in an actual crisis situation. If you suspect someone you know is suicidal, there are sites that have information about suicide, statistics and advice for talking to people who are at risk.
