Hello to all. I have just joined scope. I took an overdose last month and need help. I don't know where to turn and even if I did, I wouldn't do it, I'm so depressed.

    Hello there @jenbishop and welcome, well done for reaching out. I'm sorry to hear things are hard right now. We're going to be sending you an email with information on support, so please keep and eye out for it.

    Have you spoken to anyone else about how you've been feeling? 

    The community is here for you, so let us know if we can help. Sometimes just talking about how we're feeling is a really positive step.
