Are you going through a difficult time?


If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm and are in immediate danger, seek help as soon as possible by calling a local emergency telephone number, a suicide prevention hotline, or by going to the nearest emergency room.

At DeviantArt, we care deeply about our community – aiming to provide all our members with a safe and fun environment to create and grow.  However, we do not have trained medical professionals who can respond directly to life-threatening emergencies.  Please use the following resources if you are concerned about the safety of a DeviantArt member – including yourself.  

Resources for getting help.


Suicide, self-harm, and crisis prevention hotlines provide help to those in need – often acting as the first point of contact for individuals who are seeking help, support, and information.  Contact a hotline if you need support for yourself or need help supporting a friend.  If you're concerned about a friend, encourage the friend to contact a hotline as well.

                        The DeviantArt community is a source of strong, lasting friendships, where artists support each other through difficult times. Our community naturally encourages one another to share their emotions and passion to help enrich their art and the world around them. Sometimes, as helpful as we want to be, it’s best to seek professional help. While no particular incident led to this journal, we want to ensure there is a quick and easy way to reach out for help whenever it might be needed.
