    use 911 if you can't sift through all the numbers. Tell them what you're feeling and help is on the way.

    Give this help a chance...PLEASE.

    MC, why not leave the question alone if you don't feel like contributing. The 911 dispatcher's generally have a one-touch transfer to hospital which is where everyone goes, regardless of symptoms before getting secondary, more focused help.

    I believe in hotline numbers as they offer some help. But sometimes the help needed comes in the form of personal interaction--not verbal, over the phone "hi my name is John, how are you feeling?" type conversations.

    An excellent online resource to "chat" real time with peers who may be experiencing the same feelings or issues as you are is http://www.ChatSuicide.org. ChatSuicide.org is an anonymous text-based chat that you can access from your phone or computer. Peer support is often recognized as more effective than some of the other support options, but should not in itself replace other forms of help either.

    Give it a try, it's anonymous - http://www.ChatSuicide.org

    Online chat and phone text is going to replace traditional telephone voice, as is the trend we see going forward, right?

    do not phone 911.

    Crack open the phone book, or call the operator to be put through.

    Whats the point in this Q, we do not know where the hell you live, and it is quicker to type in Crisis Hotline, Boston (example) than it is to sign into Y!A and write this out
