Our phone and online counselors are highly trained and always ready to assist – any problem, any time, anyone.
Do I have to be suicidal to call a crisis hotline? Many people feel that they can only call a crisis hotline if they are feeling actively suicidal or facing an emergency. In reality, people call hotlines for many different reasons: from trouble at school, to relationship issues, to feeling overwhelmed or anxious. Just remember that your problem is just as important as anyone else’s, and you can feel confident and comfortable in reaching out.
