What does a suicide hotline interaction look like?
It can look like a chat or a phone call! You will be told you’ve reached the National Suicide Prevention Hotline and then you will be transferred to a counselor who can help offer prospective, advice, or just an hand to hold. It is anonymous and the purpose of the hotline is to provide you resources and help, not to tell you what to do or to chastise you.
