If you (or someone you know) has thoughts of doing self-harm, or harm to a baby or anyone else, please call to speak with a trained crisis worker. Local Crisis Helpline numbers can be found through a Google Search.  In British Columbia, Canada you can call Mental Health Support (BC-wide) at 310-6789 or you can call the North American line 1 800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433)
In ANY crisis, your local emergency number is another option and it is always available. Use 911 in North America, 999 in the UK or, if you're elsewhere, use the emergency number for your area.
