My counsellor says if you are having suicidal thoughts ring or talk to someone. But if you do you could end up in psych ward. I once mentioned it to someone and I ended up being dobbed in to the CAT team. So it makes it hard you want to talk about your thoughts and get it off your chest, but then you know if you do, there could be consequences. I think I prefer speaking to someone I know and who knows my situation. Then you might try and ring a crisis line and they are constantly busy.
