Thread: Suicide Hotlines and Support Thread

  1. #1

    Default Suicide Hotlines and Support Thread

    EDIT i think it would be a good idea for this to be stickyed

    Another forum really frequent has this thread, and I think it could be very important over here.

    If you are feeling suicidal and need help, please remember that the members at ADISC are not trained for such an emergency. A suicide hotline can save your life.

    Read this- If you are feeling suicidal before you do anything else.

    If you do not feel like talking to someone but need to get it out, use this

    The information below is accurate to the best of my knowledge; do notify me if you find a mistake.

    If you call one of the numbers and it does not work, please get the help you need from another hotline or your country's emergency number (in the U.S. and Canada, call 911; in the U.K., call 999 or 112; in Australia, call 000; in the E.U., call 112).

    I think this is a great idea. the links you provided are awesome. Thanks.

    Something I've always wondered though, is how does a suicide hotline work? If you tell them you want to harm yourself and/or already have are they going to call the local emergency number (911 ect). Is there any way for them to trace you and find out where you are, so they force help on you?

    I think if you have called a 'hotline' it is obvious you are looking for 'help'. I would hardly call any help you receive from that call 'forced'.

    The local authorities can trace you through the phone # used to make the initial call, so even if you hang up, they can, and most likely will, try to find you to help you.

    I would like to add to the list of help-lines in Canada!

    NOTE: I have called the MHMCT # in Halifax on more than one occasion in the last few years, and they've always managed to help me (without having to resort to calling 911 on my behalf)


    The following is not meant to be a complete list of help-lines available in these areas, but is at least somewhere to start!

    Yeah, you're completely right x] I misspoke. Well, mistyped. I meant to say basically if you call them are you going to be able to just talk it out? or will they call authorities on you and possibly have you committed to a psych ward of some sort?

    Can't speak for other places, but in the US they will call LEOs only if you threaten to harm yourself or indicate you already have.

    If you call a toll-free number your call can always be traced.

    My daughter worked for a suicide hot line in Blacksburg, VA when she was a psychology student. They are a good safety valve, and yes, if things sound serious, they can trace the call and send a doctor. Sometimes calls come in from someone who has taken a lot of pills, etc. It's better to reach out for help, and have someone there, than to lose someone.

    Not true. My office only contacted LEO once, and it easy for a man who spoke of killing his family.
