Mental Illness Panda

[Image of a young panda looking directly at the camera. There is a forest behind it. The top text reads: “Bad enough to want to call the crisis line.” Bottom ext reads: “Still too scared and or paranoid to talk on the phone.” submitted by wordsaladtitle. Note from Mental Illness Panda: if you are in a crisis situation and you do not feel safe using the phone and calling the crisis line, please go to the website https://www.imalive.org which is a 24hr crisis network that has the ability to help you. 100% of the volunteers are requited to be trained in crisis intervention. They are owned by the Hopeline so I assume they can deal with more than suicidal tendencies]
