The Website does not promote or encourage suicide, or attempts at suicide.

The author of the Website, however, has no special training in mental health and cannot act as a counsellor or therapist. You are strongly advised to consult with trained and licensed professionals should you have suicidal thoughts. The Website cannot replace trained mental health professionals and thus cannot substitute for crisis intervention services in an emergency.
