You can use a helpline as soon as you feel you or a friend are in crisis. Trauma, depression, substance abuse, difficulties with family and relationships, and high stress are all valid reasons to reach out. You should never feel your problem is too small or insignificant.

You will never be judged for the problems you are dealing with. The counselor's goal is to help you make healthy decisions and feel safe.

You will be asked some questions about your feelings, social situation, safety, and any thoughts of suicide that you or the person you are calling about might be having. Answering truthfully will help the counselor to help you.
