Crisis Help Lines

If your life is in danger or you know someone’s life is in danger DIAL EMERGENCY NOW (often 911 in your area).

If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, you need to know that you’re not alone.

You can also call if you are not in crisis, seeking additional information. If you come across information on this page which is incorrect, please contact us so we can update it.
