Chat-based emergency hotlines are open 24/7 for those with mental health emergencies. For people who require immediate contact, emergency hotlines are available 24/7. This is especially relevant if they don’t have a therapist on call or don’t have the time to make an appointment. Some are secular, while others are affiliated with the church or other religious institutions. Youth is one, and Trans Lifeline connects trans folks with their peers. A call to an emergency hotline will connect you to a trained volunteer, and based on the hotline, volunteers are trained to aid in such situations. Support groups are an excellent way to get assistance whenever required since they are usually free.
