Reach to God to share your feelings and seek help.

View Transcript
If this is an emergency and you need immediate help, call the suicide hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or 911. You can also reach the crisis text line by texting "home" to 741741. If you are not an immediate danger of suicide, continue on with the exercise. If there is an ice cube nearby, go get it and hold it in your hand. If there isn't one, imagine holding an ice cube in your hand. Breathe deeply as it melts in your palm. Focus on the coldness of the ice on your skin. Once the ice cube melts, take a few moments to tell God how you're feeling. Be open and honest. Now, say one positive thing about yourself. Say one positive thing about your life. Think of something you plan to do in the future. Think of someone you love. Let's repeat that process again. Say one positive thing about yourself. Now one positive part of your life. Now one plan for the future and now think of a person you love. Now ask God for help. Think of a healthy distraction from your suicidal thoughts. It could be watching TV, going on a walk, listening to music, taking a nap or reading a book. When this exercise is over, go do it.
