What you should do if you are in crisis?
Hello, everyone. It’s Mark, and welcome back to our video newsletter.
In this video, I want to talk to you about what you should do if you’re in crisis. What should you do if you are in an emergency situation?
I’m normally up at the crack of dawn, between five and six. It’s my time of peace and when I can get organized and prepare for the day and get a little exercise done. But there’s barely a day that goes by that I don’t have at least one or two messages in my inbox. People called us in the middle of the night asking for help. Sometimes they call, saying, “Can you baker act me?” And unfortunately, I cannot baker act you. So if you are in crisis, if you are in desperate need of help, here’s my suggestion.
First of all, you should call 211, the suicide hotline, if you’re feeling suicidal. You can call 911 if you need urgent medical attention. The other resource is NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, a fantastic organization with which we work and a great resource for you.
So, look, I appreciate people who call me in the middle of the night, but in the middle of the night, there’s nothing I can do for you. If you are in a crisis. 911, 211, and Nami are the best places for you to go to.
