If you are in counselling with me, I check my messages once each business day (Monday to Friday) and I will not be available on weekends or marked holidays.
However any serious life threatening emergencies (suicidal idealisation/thoughts) should be addressed immediately by calling any of the following or reporting to your local hospital or doctor:
Crisis Line 1-888-353-CARE (2273)
Suicide Distress Line 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433)
VictimLINK (24 hours) 1-800-563-080
Local Emergency numbers located in the front pages of your telephone book or through computer search
