Chat User Guidelines:

  • If you are in a life-threatening crisis, please call 911.
  • We are an emergency service. It is a felony to play pranks on or to interfere with an emergency service. We will make every effort to identify and prosecute violators.
  • You will be asked to fill out a registration form before connecting with a chat counselor. Most of the fields are optional. The information is used for research or funding purposes.
  • Please use respectful language. Any visitor who is abusive, manipulative or sexually inappropriate will be given one warning and then blocked from our service.
  • Please focus on the chat while you are online so we can help as many people as possible.

You can always speak to a crisis counselor over the phone if you prefer. Please use the following number:

800-273-TALK (8255).

We take your privacy and security very seriously and do not share or disclose any information about you to a third party. However, we reserve the right to disclose any personal information to authorities in emergency or life-threatening situations, as required by law.
