Getting Help for yourself or someone else can be as simple as this: Talk to a friend, family member or someone you trust. Tell your doctor or nurse what is happening at your next health care visit. Tell a school counselor, a coach or teacher you trust. Ask your religious leader about counseling. Often people like to talk with a counselor because of anonymity, confidentiality and expertise. Call a hotline or use an on-line support.
