What to do if your child is suicidal
Get help immediately. Seek out a professional counselor and a psychiatrist. If your insurance plan does not provide mental health services and you cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket, seek out free or low-cost mental health services in your community. In Southern Arizona, contact SAMHC (Southern Arizona Mental Health Corporation) at 520-617-0043 to make an appointment or their 24-hour crisis line at 520-522-6000.
