This is a crisis hotline that can help with many issues, not just suicide. For example, anyone who feels sad, hopeless, or suicidal; family and fiends who are concerned for a loved one; or anyone interested in mental health treatment referrals can call the Lifeline. Callers are connected with a professional nearby who will talk with them about what they are feeling or concerns for other family and friends. If you or someone you know is in suicidal crisis, call the hotline (toll free, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
