  • A list of support resources for anyone either needing support during a personal crisis, or who knows someone who may need that support. Give someone a link to this page or the Wikimedia Version if you believe it could help them.
  • If you are injured or in immediate danger, call your local emergency services (usually by dialing 110, 112 or 911 depending on your country).

Add any suggestions for this list (especially for countries with no or few options already) on the talk page; please do not add them directly to this list yourself or email an administrator.
