If you ever feel there is an emergency, always dial 911 first! That includes anyone who is in danger of hurting themselves or anyone else.
Unless specified, all hotlines are 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
All of the hotlines are for those moments when you feel you need to get some help immediately or want to talk things out with a trained professional. It does not take the place of mental health counseling, but they can guide you in the right direction to help you work through those overwhelming emotions and to the proper care.
