Get Help Now

If you are struggling to cope, feeling completely overwhelmed, or having suicidal thoughts, and are in need of urgent help right now - please use the resources below.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of any crisis services specifically for spiritual crisis. Therefore, the services below are all provided by mental health organisations. Although they may not be familiar with spiritual crisis, safety is always of primary importance in the midst of a crisis.
