If you are thinking about suicide, contact us today.

Asking for help can be hard. What if I’m not taken seriously? What if they think badly of me? I feel awkward talking about it.

That’s why we offer a safe place to talk or text in your own way. If you are struggling, reach out. We won’t judge or dismiss your feelings. We can help you explore your options, understand your problems better, or just be there to listen.

Call us toll-free anytime at 1.833.456.4566 or text us at 45645 between 4pm-12am ET.

Sometimes, during high demand it may take a while to connect to a responder. Please stay on the line or try again later. If you are in immediate danger, call 911.

Just some of the reasons to reach out:

  • Sharing your thoughts and feelings can bring relief and reduce stress
  • Working through a problem can bring perspective, reduce isolation and feel empowering
  • Connecting with others can link you to resources and help find strategies to cope

What happens when you reach out:

Whether you choose to call us toll-free or text, our trained responders will:

  • Listen to your situation
  • Provide emotional support
  • Work through options with you
  • Provide you with referral information for other services in your local area

Our trained responders won’t:

  • Tell you what to do
  • Judge you or minimise your situation
  • Avoid talking about tough issues
