"Because of (chat), my children still have a mother, my mom still has a daughter, my students still have a teacher...I still have a life."
Donate to Save Lives
More than half of our visitors are having suicidal thoughts. Our specialists receive extensive suicide intervention training, and we work with visitors on a plan to keep them safe. Your donation to CONTACT USA helps prevent suicide.
Donate to Help People Who Aren't Getting Help Otherwise
Lifeline Crisis Chat reaches people who have not sought help any other way. We hear from many visitors that if Chat did not exist, they would not get help at all. Others have told us things they have not even felt comfortable talking about to their therapist. With your help, we can reach even more people.
