It goes without saying that semicolon cares about your mental health and well-being. If you are struggling, please reach out for help. Don't be afraid to reach out on behalf of someone you may be worried about, too (many of these resources give advice on this aspect). You are not alone, and you are loved. WE love you. This is not an exhaustive list of resources, but here are some that may help. We will update this page as we find more resources.
