Suicide Prevantion

‘Don’t suffer alone, talk to someone'

Living in modern society, we experience a lot of conflicts in human relationships filled with worries and stresses. Stress and depression that we feel in our daily life can be relieved when we talk to close friends or family. It is helpful for your mental health to speak out your mind and think about it from the opposite side.

Otherwise, your deep-rooted negative emotions would make you distressed and frustrated. With such emotions sticking in your mind, it would be getting harder for you to stay calm and peaceful. If you keep feeling distress for a while and cannot dispel it by yourself, you should seek help from an expert as soon as possible.

As it is very difficult to overcome hardships on your own, OBOS Suicide Prevention Center helps those suffering from psychological distress, willing to commit suicide, or having a hard time after the death or suicide of their loved ones.
