i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

I am 14 and so far I have tried to kill my self 6 times. I have seen many counselors and they do help but i still want to kill myself and a number of times I have thought about how I would kill my self is too many i cant keep count. I'm not sure if the hospital is the place I should go as right now I want to die and my friends are basically keeping me alive. i do not sh but i have tried but i hate sharp things touching me for some reason. i runs im the family so much and im scared of what people will think of me and what they will do to me in the hospital.

Re: i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

Hi @emmajaynep I am so sorry to hear about you feeling this way. Super well done on seeing counsellors, even though it can be frustrating to still feel like ending your life. It's good to hear your friends are keeping you alive, sounds like they are a good support.


Are your counsellors/family/friends aware as to how often you think about ending your life? Sorry about all the questions, just want to make sure I have got everything right before we get to strategies. Also are you able to stay safe tonight? Look forward to talking with you and to see if we can find some awesome strategies to get you feeling a bit better.

Re: i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

Hey @emmajaynep I can understand you feeling exhausted if it's been since last Sunday. Just a quick heads up on ReachOut we can't use methods of self harm so had to edit your post, no biggy just need to be mindful of other members. We have community guidelines you can read here.

Really sounds stormy for you at the moment, and we definitely all want you to stay alive and try and get to the other side of these feelings. Though I can understand it is an exhausting experience. Have you ever used some of the services available at all hours? One really good one is Kids Helpline (1800 55 1800) as well as Suicide Callback Service (1300 659 467). They both can talk to you about how to manage really regular thoughts of suicide, and they can do this as the feelings come up. Would you give either of those a go?

Re: i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

Hey @emmajaynep I am logging off soon but I really hope you do contact SCBS (1300 659 467) or 000 if you feel like you can't stay safe.

When you can, give us an update on how you are going, ReachOut is a great space to speak with other young people dealing with similar thoughts. I will tag some other members who may be able to share their journey with you as well. Heart

Re: i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

hi there. i wanted to kill myself once, but i still regret wanting to do it. the hospital might seem bad, but you will probably feel safe if u give it a trial. the people/staff in the hospital are really nice- i have to go there a number of times a month because i have dodgy medical problems. your friends sound like really nice people. have you contacted Kids Help Line? i emailed them again last night because i had bullying issues. you get to talk to an individual counselor or you can talk to them on web chat or on the phone. my parents don't know about me being on this site but it really helps me sort things out. they don't know that i have contact with KHL because my parents tell me to toughen up.

Re: i am 14 and i need help and i dont know what to do

Hey there @emmajaynep i am so sorry to hear how tough things are right now for you. I can hear how scary and stressful all of this must be and also (let me know if i'm wrong) that it feels really hard to talk about with people. 


 @mlang166 had some really great suggestions. Is there any there that you'd like to try? What's the most important thing for you right now? What can we do to help you get through this? Smiley Happy
