suicidal emergencies are NOT part of the clinical
services offered by AbuseConsultants.com.
Any acute emergencies must refer to 911, the
local hospitals, crisis facilities, the local
mental health centers in your area, or online
crisis agencies for immediate assistance.

to respond quickly enough in an immediate
life-threatening crisis, and should not be
expected to do so.

or telephone services. Some of the following
agencies may be of assistance:

However, AbuseConsultants.com recognizes that
there is frequently a level of chronic suicidality
in people who have suffered from the negative
impact of sexual abuse and severe trauma.
This is an issue where people often feel like
dying or wish they could die, but are not
actively pursuing this death wish. Suicidal
ideation may be present for years, and does
not necessarily coincide with acute suicide
attempts or life-threatening behavior.
AbuseConsultants.com is willing to participate
in the ongoing treatment of suicidal ideation
that is NOT acutely life-threatening.
