DEPRESSION & SUICIDE HOPE LINE: 1-800-830-9804
Depression comes to all of us at times. But if you can’t seem to get out of it, if you are in a constant state of sadness, maybe even fighting thoughts of suicide, you’ll try just about anything to get away from the pain. You might be using drugs or alcohol to try and fight it. If that’s you, please make one phone call that can save your life. You can speak to someone who not only wants to help you – but has likely gone through depression or addiction themselves and are also in recovery. They can help you find a way off of that dark path you’re on. Call for yourself, or call to help someone who can’t or won’t call on their own. Someone is there 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. 800-830-9804 or online at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.

BATTLE THE DARKNESS
To celebrate the anniversary of Weird Darkness, every October I take the month and ask you, my Weirdo family, to give what you can to help battle depression and suicide. In October 2018 you helped raise $2,240 – every dollar of which was donated to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline! We’ll be doing it again this coming October, 2019!
