If you are depressed and/or have suicidal thoughts you should seek help as soon as you can. There is always a way to get out of a situation and suicide is never the answer; you need to remember that help is always available and that things will get better. Seeking psychotherapy is the surest way to relieve suicidal thoughts. However, not everyone is comfortable discussing these type of thoughts and problems face-to-face. If you are one of those people, it is important for you to know that there are also other ways you can get immediate help and one of them is a suicide chat online. This is much easier for many people as it is more impersonal and you are able to remain anonymous while sharing your thoughts and feelings. Even though online chatting can provide immediate relief and can certainly help you deal with suicidal thoughts, you should always remember that seeking help from a trained psychotherapist be able to help you improve your long-term life quality. Nonetheless, suicide chats online should not be overlooked if you feel you are in a crisis.
