It is important to remember that this program is not a substitute for a trained
counsellor and cannot provide crisis or emergency assistance. If you are
experiencing problems with your mood, or significant distress we urge you to see
your GP right away.
If you are feeling suicidal, or need to speak with someone urgently,
we urge you to use the following organisations for immediate assistance:
Both of these organisations also offer online support and counselling, so please
access their websites if you prefer this option. You can always come back to the
DEAL Program when you are able.
Local help lines for other parts of the world are listed at befrienders.org.
If you are concerned about feelings or thoughts of suicide, a 24-hour service is
available to help. The website for more information is
http://www.suicidecallbackservice.org.au/ or PH: 1300 659 467. This organisation
also provides a call back service, offering crisis counselling to people at risk
of suicide, carers for someone who is suicidal, and those bereaved by suicide.
