Hello, it sounds like you are going through a tough time right now. It was really brave of you to reach out for help and I want you to know that you are not alone. If you are having thoughts about suicide please consider talking to someone you trust such as a parent, relative, neighbor, teacher, guidance counselor, or anyone else that you feel that you can talk to about what is going on. You asked if it was possible to be placed on suicide watch. There are different ways to get the type of help you are asking about. If you are thinking about suicide or harming yourself in any way, please call our 24/7 Lifeline at 866-488-7386 and talk to a trained counselor. It can be helpful to talk to someone and look at different options for how to cope with your thoughts and feelings. You can also call 911, visit your nearest hospital or try to connect with a local mental health professional to get immediate help. You might also consider talking to a family member or friend that can go with you to the hospital if needed. Please know that you are never alone and someone is always here for you at The Trevor Project. The number again is 866-488-7386. Be well and take care of yourself!
