Please note that some crisis line workers are mandated to report calls regarding suicide to the police. If this is a concern, we encourage you to first ask about their reporting policies before sharing.
If you or someone you know is in immediate, life-threatening danger and decide to call 911, please be aware that police are not equipped to offer mental health support and may even pose danger to People of Color, Neurodivergent people and Disabled people. Please ALSO reach out to community leaders, neighbors, friends, and family to be present if you are calling the police. Call or text Blackline (prioritizing BIPOC) 800-604-5841, Trans Lifeline 877-565-8860 (US) / 877-330-6366 (Canada) or click here to see more crisis services and information about police intervention.
