The content in the above pages was originally created by Lucrezia Lamont and friends and distributed in a set of notecards entitled “Luneko New Resident Resource Kit.” Sadly, Lucrezia is no longer in Second Life. The notecards were last updated in mid-2007, but the information is still surprisingly good. We will continue to keep these pages up to date.
Depression and Suicide Help
Do you feel qualified to counsel someone who is depressed and may be considering suicide? I don’t either. Here is some information that may help you refer a resident to a group that can help them. The last three links are articles that appeared in The SL Enquirer.

- DEPRESSION IN SL, PART 1: How do you reach out for help or help others overcome emotional issues
