I've never called a suicide hotline before and I was wondering has anyone ever called and was it helpful? I don't want to give out any personal information on the phone though. I've just been suicidal lately and was thinking about calling but I wanted to know what to expect when I call.

Thanks Nate

I've called my local one before (years ago) and they sucked. They basically told me I wasn't suicidal enough.

I've heard though that most hotlines are better now. But I don't know and don't remember what information they asked for because this was years ago. Sorry.

Some are better than others. It depend on the individual who you are to get. Some tell you to drink chamomile tea and when you are in crisis that might not be very helpful. Are there any self-help support groups where you live? Seeing other people in crisis can help you feel less alone.

Yeah, it makes sense (how it'd depend on who you get)

...but....

chamomile tea?????!!!

Not even St John's wort?! (which for me doesn't work by the way)

:)

AS IF a darned TEA could do anything at a moment of such despair! ;)

I hope whoever you get at the hotline is a good one TCB, or if you find someone to talk to, that it helps!!!
