Resources

This page is dedicated to sharing information to help LGBTQ youth, seniors, and veterans focusing on suicide prevention and crisis intervention.

The Trevor Project is based in Los Angeles and New York, but the number below is for anyone and everyone, nationwide. Please, if you’re having a hard time and you don’t know what to do or who to talk to, call. If you know someone who may need this number, talk to them. If you don’t know anyone needing help you could still save a life — write the number on the bathroom mirror or tack it up on a bulletin board.

You never know who may need it, or when.
