Self-Harm & Suicide Helplines List

Your rating: None


Average: 4.2 (23 votes)

Helplines/hotlines, text lines, chat support, e-mail support, forums, etc. for self-harm and suicide. Not to say that they come hand in hand for every person but this page started as a general hotlines page and I still want people to be able to find resources if they're suicidal if they're coming from an old link.
