What happens when you call the suicide hotline?!? Website/YouTube Wednesday #KatiFAQ | Kati Morton


Hey everybody. Happy Wednesday. And since it’s Wednesday that means that I’m on the website, ‘W’ for Wednesday, we’re so clever. And I’m on youtube. So if you asked your questions under yesterday’s video, I’ll try to get through some of them later tonight, just answering them one by one. But I have picked two from youtube and two from the website, and then I have a journal topic. So, and sorry about yesterday’s video. Sean was trying out a new camera, and it didn’t work.
It was horrible. And that’s why it took forever to upload. Because first of all the audio was really quiet, if you noticed you couldn’t even hear me, and it was horrible. And so I thought that I was going to have to do it again. And then we had to export it, ehh. It was a nightmare. And then I thought that it went up yesterday evening before I went to bed but then I woke up to no video, and I was like WTF youtube.
So annoying. But anyway,
so now I am back on my phone,
my regular recording device for vloging. And it was weird to have Sean recording a vlog, because I’m not used to having anybody recording me but me. And I was like
‘This feels weird, I feel like I am doing a topic video’. If you noticed at the end I was like
‘Towards a healthy mind and a healthy body.’ Like I do with my other videos. And I was like, what’s happening? Okay, so anyway.
I’m chatting too much, I have to get through my questions. First question:
‘If you call a suicide hotline. Who will you be talking to, what will they say, what will they do, what will happen,’ ‘what will they ask? But the way this is for a friend not me as she has thoughts and wants to know what will happen if she calls. Thanks.’ Okay, so. If you call a suicide hotline you talk to someone like myself. Actually, it will be someone who is an intern usually. Because it’s one of those jobs that doesn’t pay at all,
or not very much. And us interns we end up working those jobs. And that’s fine. It’ll be, you usually have to the cell phone with you and you are on call for x amount of hours, and there are bunch of people doing this. So chances are you are just going to get someone just like me. What will they say. They will ask you about.
They will do a basic suicide assessment. And that means that they will ask, you know. Do you have a plan, what are your thoughts like, how long has this been going on? And then they will just try to talk you down. A lot of you I know have called suicide hotlines,
so can you please leave your feedback below. Because I know many of you have had good experiences with it and you’ve called multiple times. So nothing’s better than our actual personal experience, right. Yeah, so I think that’s it. Nothing really happens. If they are really worried for your safety, they are going to try to find out where you live because they are going to want to send a PET team, or some kind of, a PET team stands for Psychological Evaluation Team, I can’t quite remember. But they are just the people that you call to make sure that. If I have a suicidal patient, that’s who I call to make sure that they are okay. So they just want to keep you safe. It’s nothing scary, they are not going to force you into doing anything, or ask you a bunch of bunch of question. They just want to make sure that you are okay. Question number two:
‘Hey Kati, is it normal to judge others and immediately find them unattractive and ugly?’ ‘I really hate to judge others because no one has the right to and I try to replace that with positive thoughts and’ ‘it helps. Why is this happening? By the way, I have really low self esteem if that helps.’ I thought that this was really interesting, a lot of you commented back on this. So if you were the person that asked this, I know that you haven’t added me on google+ because I couldn’t reply and let you know that I was going to answer this. And other people replied to you and couldn’t reply either, so they just used your username. This happens when we feel really bad about ourselves, it oozes our into everything, oh no. And I find that if I am in a really shitty mood, I’m grouchy with everybody. I’m like ‘Eh, what are you doing, driving so terrible, who are you, oh my god, bleh bleh bleh.’ Because we are in such a bad headspace,
that we have no other outlet. And often times when we can’t tell whoever we are really upset about, or if it is actually nothing and we are just tired or hungry or whatever. Often times we just judge people, we look at people on the street and we are like ‘Ehh, I can’t believe she wore that, oh my god, dah dah dah.’ And we judge. And it’s not usually indicative of the person. It’s not about us, we’re not a bad person is what I mean to say. And it also isn’t about the person that we are judging, because most of the time they are not even ugly, unatractive, stupid. We are just frustrated and we are just full of hate and ugly stuff a lot of the time and so it’s oozing out. And like you said, replacing it with
positive thoughts really helps. And just being aware. I find that if I notice how many times I’m aggressive or angry or frustrated or judging to other people. The more apt I am to say ‘Hmm,’ I sit back and I think, ‘It’s really not that bad. And that person actually, I’m sure they are very sweet.’ You can just lie, because we don’t know them, right. We are judging them negatively so lets judge them positively. So say things like, ‘I bet she spent a lot of time getting ready, I bet she is really nice.’ Or, ‘Maybe she had a really hard day. Maybe she’s running really late.’ You know, cut them some slack. We’d hope the same from others, right. So I find doing the positive talk really helps. And usually is happening to answer the question directly, it usually happens because we are feeling really badly about ourselves. And we are judging ourselves so much that it’s coming out that way too. Question number three:
‘Is it normal to have trouble deciding whether it’s your’ ‘healthy voice or your eating disorder voice telling you to eat/exercise. For example, sometimes I have already’ ‘eaten a decent meal and I can’t tell if my healthy voice is telling me to eat because I didn’t eat enough.’ ‘Or if it is my ED voice telling me to binge. The same with exercise, and I do it to healthy. But my eating disorder wants me to do it excessively, etc.’ This is a really good question. And I hear this a lot from my clients, ‘But I don’t know which one, I can’t distinguish.’ Now this is where the intuitive eating workbook is the bomb. It is amazing. It really helps us, it can help people who don’t even struggle with an eating disorder actively right now, help us actually listen to our body. So something that I do, that I tell my clients to do, is to gauge your hunger and fullness level. Which they will talk about in that book, if you haven’t looked into the intuitive eating workbook, look into it. It’s amazing. But you will rate your hunger on a scale from, I think it’s zero or one, I’m not sure, till ten. Now if zero being like ‘I will murder you for food, I’m so hungry oh my god.’ Ten being like ‘I could bend over and throw up right now, I am so full.’ Ideally, we want to start eating when we are around a four, when we think ‘I am kind of hungry, wow I am really hungry.’ And we want to stop around a seven. An eight is, ‘Oh, I had two bites too many.’ A nine is ‘I feel stuffed to the gills.’ Do you see what I mean, how we kind of gauge. And I find it really helpful to start trying to use that. So how hungry am I? Well I am kind of hungry right now,
maybe I’m about a six or a five. I should probably start thinking about what do I want to make for dinner. And then as you are eating, make sure that you are not taking hours to eat, obviously. But within the half hour that you are eating or twenty minutes that you are eating, check in with yourself. Am I feeling pretty full? How am I doing? Am I eating the full portion that my dietician told me to? Am I adding more, am I eating less? Just start checking in and rating your hunger and fullness. I also sometimes will have my clients rate their emotion, like scale of emotions at the same time that we do food. Like ‘How hungry are you’, ‘Well I’m like a four so my emotion is like a eight because I am getting hungry and I am freaking out.’ So those can really help you. And if any of you have tips about this,
leave your comments below. But that tends to help my clients gauge emotional-ness and hunger and fullness. And also for exercise I find that doing like a set regiment for a while can be the most helpful. Like 30 minutes of walking three times a week. And then we see how we do. And we talk to our doctor and we have them implement a plan for us so that we can stick to that structure until we feel okay doing it on our own.
Okay. And if you are tired or sick, don’t work out. Don’t do it, it’s bad. Your body needs the rest. Just tell yourself, ‘Kati would say that it’s okay to rest. Bodies need rest. If we are not feeling good, don’t do anything extra.’ Okay. Question number four:
‘I am 38 and seeking out professional help for the first time to deal with issues from being abused as a child.’ ‘My dad, mom, and brother were all abusive to me in different ways growing up.’ ‘My mom is gone now. But I fear that my therapist would want me to confront my dad and/or brother or write’ ‘to them, or write them out of my life. And I don’t want to do either. My relationships with them may not be perfect,’ ‘but they are still part of my life and I still love them very much. The only outcome to confronting them that I’ ‘can envision would be damaging to both of us.’ Therapists aren’t going to force us to do anything. We may ask you to confront within yourself, your abuser. Maybe writing letters that you don’t send. But if you don’t have any of that built up animosity or anger, or hurt that’s still lingering, then they wouldn’t ask you to do that anyways. But if you do, it’s something that we are worried more about you healing for you, not doing anything outwardly to them. That is at your discretion, it’s your choice. Because you know your relationship with them, you know what you could say and do. If you are wanting to build a relationship, then it will mostly be the work with you and how you work on communicating with them. Now, some people like to say that they forgive them to their abusers at some point. Like, you know, ‘Dad, I love you and I forgive you for what happened in the past.’ That might be something that you do more for you than for him. And that’s not really confrontational, it’s just a thing that you are saying, you know, ‘I’ve been working it in therapy and letting the past go. And this is part of that.’ But it’s something that you will talk about with your therapist. So never feel like your therapist is forcing you to do things.
Okay. And if you have a therapist that is like,
‘You’ve got to do this’, I think you should look for another one. Because that’s supposed to be something that we do together. Like a dance kind of. Maybe. Maybe like a Salsa. Now I’m just kidding, now I’m getting off track. But you know what I mean, it’s more us working together as a team meeting you were you are at and making sure that you get the support that you need at that time. Okay. And speaking of dancing, I’ve got my journal topic. Music therapy,
what does it mean to you, what you tried it before? I love music as therapy. And I’m not talking, I don’t know if there are actual musical therapists, there probably are. I know that there are art therapists. That will do like movement therapy like dance and stuff. And that can be really healing. But for me I find music to be so therapeutic, and so incorporated into my life in a way that I find helpful. Whether I need upbeat happy music, you know. Like some people even listen to disney tunes, gets you really riled up. Or like dance music or rap music. Or yoga music, like, ‘I don’t even know what that words are la-la-la-la’ But it really helps you mellow out. So I would encourage you to share songs, we are all looking for new music all the time right. Share some new songs that you like and tell us what mood they go with. And lets figure out a better way to use music to help us out. And if you haven’t tried it, try putting on some happy music if you need to be more happy. And mellow music if your anxiety is through the roof. And see what happens, right.
We never know. And let me know what you think. I will see you all tomorrow, I will be on twitter, because it’s Thursday. So ask your questions there.

100 thoughts on “What happens when you call the suicide hotline?!? Website/YouTube Wednesday #KatiFAQ | Kati Morton

  1. Was going to call it but now I'm not especially after I read the comments … I don't want anyone to send the cops and then my mom finding out, she'll just get even more mad with me

  2. Well I phoned a medical helpline to report abuse in my home,as the police would not act,I had injurys the medical line set up an adult protection which was cancelled,I the police turned up and I was put in a nut house,which happened again when I reported the police,they said I harrassed a medical helpline they phoned the police about my abuse,and it went round I got put back and the abuse is now worse,that's what it's become in GB,I now cannot phone the po. Lice as I call them,or medical helplines,my injurys they said I did myself,even though a doctor commented about bruising on my back royal Berkshire is pretty messed up,you should see how many single females here have abuse leaflets in their windows,and are driven from their own homes,I'll probably get incarcerated for putting this up.stay strong.

  3. I’ve thought about suicide and calling the suicide prevention hotline
    I just never did because my phone couldn’t call people, thank god cuz the police would’ve been at my door if i called
    But to be honest I never find anything to be happy about other than my boyfriend
    My bestfriend calls me names and bullies/teases me with her friends
    I want to walk home with my boyfriend after school but sadly my bestfriend and one of her friends have to walk with me. They don’t like my boyfriend and always tease me in a bad way just because I’m dating him and love him. They don’t like him only because we spend literally all day together?
    There’s a lot of people that hate me and a lot of people that think I’m super annoying. I hate when people call me a lesbian just because it was a mistake to date another female.
    I’ve done self harm because of it and everything hurts
    It hurts so much

  4. i really want to call a suicide hotline, but i don't want the cops showing up at my door… i just want someone to talk to – that won't do something that would make everything worse. that would just make my life even more shit. i asked my dad if i could see someone in town soon, hopefully it's going to happen… i don't trust these hotlines.

  5. In South Africa the Suicide Hotline is not connected to  the cops. The police are so useless they cannot even track criminal calls. I really don't want to talk to anyone. Let alone the Hotline. I overdosed and colleagues came to my flat the next day when I didn't pitch for work. In SA a psychologist is appointed/comes to you in hospital. (I don't know how it works) They do their utmost to commit you to a Mental Clinic. I refused.

  6. You call a suicide hotline so you can talk to someone like a therapist all we need is to be anonymous so we can talk to someone we don’t want anyone to come see us we just want to talk to a random person to help us. This is how I feel it’s not how everyone feels.

  7. I don't want people coming to my house and talking about it like the police and stuff and my parents would get involved. So I guess I'm not gonna call the suicide prevention hotline.

  8. Yes they call the police who show up at your house. Not any pet team. The cops. Who want to take you to a mental hospital to be hospitalized and traumatized. Yes it's traumatizing.

    I seriously want ppl to know that this is what Happens at least in PA in does.

    If you want the police to show up at your home and cart you off to a mental hospital then call and you will get the help you want.

    Otherwise I say don't call. I have found it's lies when they say they don't call the police they do.

  9. When I called a suicide hotline I told the woman how I felt and she told me to hold on. I sat there for a bit in silence then finally checked and saw that the woman hung up on me.

  10. I called the hotline yesterday and this nice man picked up and helped me out today I called again and this lady picked up and I told her about how i called yesterday and she said that there was no one under my number that called yesterday and thought I was lying. Then, after I started talking she said that I could only call this number once a week for the suicidal calls and I told her I was suicidal and she said oh ok. She kept interrupting me asking if I needed an ambulance or if I needed to call CPS I kept telling her no but was somewhat helpful. Moral of the story: They all want to help you, but some are more harmful then others.

  11. I don't think it's fair to say that Katie was "lying" to people about suicide hotlines because it seems that she's had clients in the past who had positive experiences with them. She may not even be aware that some hotlines are terrible and not helpful at all, or send the police to your house. It's great that you guys are sharing your stories, so that now she'll be more informed (and hopefully is) but I can't envision her as a person who lies. I mean, she's a counselor. It's her job to be honest with people.

  12. "They just want to make sure you're okay"
    Bullshit, if they determine you're a danger to yourself they'll take away your rights and make you a ward of the state. Then they can send you to any mental hospital type facility until they decide you can go.

  13. Reading all these comments I'm honestly scared, my parents are part of the problem and I know for a fact it'll get worse if I call. But I want to get better so I'm just stuck right now and it's horrible. I don't really know what to do.

  14. i was going to call but i saw the people so im not my parents would think im crazy i guess i jave too do this alone

  15. Someone pls reply I need a awnser.. I’ve seen something in the comments about 741-741 if u txt this number do the cops come to ur house

  16. If you want to die, just hang in there.
    Life is in an infinite motion of change. Things will get better. You have one life, death reaches everyone someday. So, while you’re here, try to enjoy the ride and make it worthwhile.
    I used to be the saddest person I had ever known, I’ve never knew anyone remotely as dark and empty as I was, I knew the only person to change that, was myself.
    I don’t know exactly what I did, it was nothing physical but more so mentally.
    The more we tell ourselves we are something, the more we use it as a foundation for who we are. I evolved my mentality to be positive based on my one life, death reaches everyone philosophy. You can do it.
    I love you. Hit me up, if someone ever needs to talk.
    I got you.
    Looking for friends, in this cavernous world anyways.

  17. I just got hung up on by the crisis hotline.
    "OK BYE"
    and then gone.
    I am losing it.
    I think its BPD but I have no diagnoses.
    what is the point in all of these things in life?
    People and their manipulative positivity, trying to force a person to think differently.
    I lost my mind and just kept calling back trying to get the point across that they are messing with my head.

  18. One time I called one and couldn’t get the words out that I was going to end it all and started to freak out and the lady got angry and told me to call back when I knew what I wanted 😡 I never tried calling again. I would rather attempt that go through that again

  19. When I rang the suicidal hotline I was trying to give myself Alcohol poisoning as I was talking to them and then after I came off the phone I took an overdose so ringing these people does not help I know I've been there.

  20. I need help but due to the comments I don't want the cops in my house. I also don't want a hot line that probably won't even help at all.

  21. I call The suicide hotline before and the lady was really nice I don't want to kms but I just wanted to have a person to talk to and that's person is like my guardian angel 😇❤️ she was very nice and gave me good advice about my situation 😊 😁

  22. I prefer online chats like beyondblue or lifeline (I think was the last one I used). I hate talking on the phone. But I gave them a fake name and suburb (they don't ask for your full address) because as much as I was in a bad place I didn't feel I needed anything more than a chat. Whereas I knew they would hear what I was saying and send someone for a welfare check.

  23. well, that's that. My last resort is trashed and I guess I… I should leave at my next opportunity.

  24. I think I might call it, not because I want to kill myself but I just want to know how to stop being depressed

  25. I was going to call the suicide hotline. But after realizing that the cops will show up to my door, that just ruined my chances. I don’t want to drag my parents into my shitty mess.

  26. If you call them they only call the police if you're selfharming or hurting yourself or even in the middle of killing yourself. I think..

  27. Here's the deal, many suicidal people arent interested in getting help. They WANT to die. They dont want to live. Why would we call someone who is gonna try to get them to stop? If you've thought about death for years, and you make your plan to self harm, you dont want to be stopped. Frankly, people trying to stop you is aggravating.

  28. i once texted the suicide hotline and they’ve sent the police to my door, if they send the police and you don’t want to be seen, just don’t answer the door and they will eventually go away guys

  29. Honking Car Locking is Torturous Noise Pollution. It wakes people up. Please Lock You Car Quietly.

  30. Confidentiality my ass.They almost always call the cops. You get to the end of the call and you come up with a plan to stay safe and you start to feel better and then they’re just like “oh yeah. We have to call the cops” and it just shatters all happiness you just gained.

  31. I honestly think the best thing to do is talk with someone that is super close to you 🙏❤ because no one wants no police at their door

  32. Hotlines are total trap. Tgey say what you say is confidential but if that so why do they call the cops. Then the cops cuff you put you in a police car take you to the police station book you. Put you in a holding cell. Then hours later have a crisis person come talk to you. Then hours after thar you goto the ER wait hours there. You tell your story to at least 5 more people Then you go to the nut house. Forced to go to group therapy. And while your there people are hooking up with each other. This all happened to me. Sucide is a better option then calling the sucide hotline.

  33. I’m only 12 but life has been so hard for me I just wanna die. My parents probably hate me and a lot of people hate me for my flaws my whole class makes me the drama starter and I can’t defend myself. I’m weak, tired, and defenseless I keep asking myself the same questions “why does everyone always hate me?” And “what did I do that was so horrible?” And “why do I go to a catholic school praise god and say he’s good? My life is an emotional roller coaster that I don’t enjoy it. I have attempted to hang myself but I keep thinking about the people who love me.
    My best friends Endrea,Axel,Kelise,Jazlyn,Angelina,my-love(yes that’s her name it’s weird but I like it) and Riley. People keep telling me “be positive!” But it’s hard. I also get my flaws called out like “you always do this and it’s annoying.” “I wanna be her friend but she makes it so hard.” And someone even said “she wants to kill her self over a 6th grade relationship?” That was so hurtful you don’t even understand how ignorant can you be to say something so mean? I haven’t been diagnosed with depression but I have a feeling I do I’m lazy scum that can’t do anything right.but I’m not edgy I’m far from that I try to stay positive but it’s hard. My family never understands what I’m going through so I stay quiet and never tell them my feelings because they try to make it seem like I’m being selfish and that I’m only caring about myself and that you should enjoy being a kid because it’s worse when your an adult it’s so irritating.but I’m gonna stop complaining now because this is getting long.

  34. Hello there fellow human, If you are feeling down or feel like like giving up remember that as a sperm cell you came into this world fighting. So dont leave this world without a good one.

  35. You’re quirky and weird. I Love You. I appreciate this video. I can tell you have a beautiful Heart 💜

  36. When I get sad … this is my favorite song to cheer up … You mentioned music … this is my healing song … https://youtu.be/2v8YragSIuI

  37. I want to call it but im only a kid and im scared if my parents find out if im suicidal

  38. They don't help! I called the suicide hotline and she asked me if I want to talk to someone who understands more about my problem, so I said yes and I got redirected to the Trevor project and still the same! Their response don't sound like they want to talk to u like they're bored and trying to get away from the conversation.

  39. I wasn't suicidal but had a seizure and I'm musically inclined and write songs I was riding my bike and randomly had some lyrics for a anti suicide song pop into my head and I didn't have any paper at the time so I took a sharpie and wrote the lyrics on my arm and would of wrote them when I got home. I ended up having a seizure and when paramedics showed I had refused treatment like usual but once they saw the song title and lyrics on my arms they took it as I was suicidal and they then said that I was going too the hospital for evaluation and when I refused they called the police and next thing I know I'm being tazed and sent too the hospital all the while I'm telling them I'm not suicidal it's a anti suicide song that I had too write on my arm due too lack of paper

  40. What happened to me… I called the hotline maybe 2-3 months ago. And I called with no intention to commit suicide. Just to talk through my depression and such. The guy I talked knew I had no intent cause I even told him that. 20 min after the call the cops showed up at my house. My parents weren't home. So I was freaking out I told them it was a joke. And they didn't believe me at all. They told me to not call if I don't have an issue. And i just nodded. So i would never ever call a hotline ever again because they do call the police in most cases. 😐🤨

  41. A few hours ago today, after I talked to them, the police showed up at my door. I told the person on the hotline i was fine, but the police still came. So, Im kinda scared about whats going to happen next.. are they gonna like put me in a mental hospital?? because im perfectly fine..

  42. If you really dont need the police, you should make it clear to the hotline worker. Like REALLY clear because, they might take what youre saying and blow it out of proportion. I think if you mention suicide its a rule or something to call the police.

  43. Ok so I read the comments and thought yeah that isn’t happening. Anything to avoid the cops just not sure who to even tell I just need help not being treated like an animal . I was going to call one but now I’m just like yeah I’ll just have to suffer for 2 more years (im 16) my parents would get involved and it would be this huge shitty mess and everyone would just hate me. I want help but CANNOT have parents or police or my school involved.

  44. Everyone’s saying they were taking to a mental hospital and everything. Don’t tell them you plan to harm yourself just say you need to talk to someone and they 9/10 won’t call police. I hope everyone has a great day. I’m sorry this happened to all of you

  45. Im looking at all these comments, I was really hoping i could at least talk to a fucking hotline about shit…apparently nothing is sacred anymore. Why would they involve police…like I understand from the others point of view. But when ur the actual person it makes u scared, nervous and overall uncomfortable…

  46. I called them once and they didn’t help me at all lol.
    I felt like the fbi was watching me the whole time

  47. I would recommend going on an anonymous site, like reddit. They give great support and won’t let you go anywhere. They will help you, there are things like Whisper as well. So many sites dedicated to saving you from all the pain you are in.

  48. If you need someone to talk to go to 7Cups of Tea. You can text with someone anonymously and they’re all very nice! I am one of the listeners. 🙂

  49. The worst part is I used a landline once and my power went out so FUCK ME I spent the rest of the outage waiting for the PET team and they never came to this day

  50. The suicide hotline isn’t good because all they do is call the cops on you which can make you feel so much worse

    It’s better to text the crisis hotline it’s confidential if they want the suicide hotline to be better make it confidential and pay your damn workers with qualified people

  51. I was having thoughts, I still am. But I was going to call the suicide hotline because I heard good stories, where they just support you. But I went to the comment section on this video and I was like “helll nooooo”

  52. Going through commets makes me scared of the suicide hotline.
    I have never called them. And wont in near future. The thing is, I live in denmark. And in denmark, we have what's called "the child phone", that you can call, untill the age of 23.
    They can't see your number. They can't see your name. You parents can't see it on the phone bill! If they think some adults should help out, they ask the kid to calmly talk to the parents, or askes the kid to hand the phone to their parents, unless it's about abuse or bad parents.
    And it's not just if we selfharm or wanna die we can call.
    Being scared about love? You can call.
    Are you getting bullied at school? You can call them.
    Do you just wanna know more about the child phone? You can call them.
    Or like I did a few weeks ago, call just to talk things out. Cry a bit. And get a little advice with you on the way.
    The best is, there is a chat system. A call line. And sms line. And the ability, to write a "letter" that both adults, but also kids can come with advice on.
    It's amazing, and if any kid in denmark needs that, you should totally use it 🙂

  53. reading the comments, i know i will never call a suicide hotline…

    i've always been so close to calling a suicide hotline when i was desperate for help and i am glad i didn't…

    but now knowing that i shouldn't call a suicide hotline made me feel like there really is no…no source of help for me…?

    like…i can not talk to any of my friends or siblings because they themselves are struggling and if i tell them what i'm thinking in my mind then i know it will hurt them mentally too…and i can't talk to my mom because she never understands and she always inputs something negative to everything i say so it wouldn't help at all…

    i guess it's a sign that i am meant to keep it all in my head and keep it all built up in me…
    there is now no hope for me? i'm done

  54. I feel like doing it a lot but I can’t call them because my mum can see who I call and she’ll get mad at me and judge me

  55. listen, the reason why the suicide hotline has the power to give the police your information isn’t so your gonna go to jail or shit. it’s because the police are supposed to protect their community, and that’s what they are doing when the suicide hotline gives them your info. the police will most likely go to your house, so they can take you to a safer place. i have seen this whole thing play out with my own eyes. it wasn’t for me.. it was for a very close family member that tried to take his life. so if you are suicidal, and the only reason why you don’t want to call is because of the police, please call anyways.

  56. Man do you have a direct line. 😣 I’m not trying to be negative at all but the hotline I called … at first, I felt like my mind could be changed & a stranger that does this everyday was the only hope to guide me…
    I told her, how i felt about her scripted talk, gum chewing and “okays”… then thanked her lol, told her good bye and continued what i was doing before my sister helped me to the hospital…

    I will never Recommend a hot line, or atleast that one… but stuck knowing i need to let it out

  57. I've gotten close to calling a hotline so many times, but I get scared someone will show up at my door or that my family will find out and be disappointed or that I might somehow get in trouble. I'm so thankful I have a group of friends I can call who support me and calm me down. Without them, I don't know where I would be. I think if I called the hotline and someone showed up at my door, it would just make it so much worse, I would probably feel very disappointed in myself and almost ashamed.

  58. for many of those who need help, and have wanted to call but is scared vc of cops, i would be happy to hear you out. sometimes that’s all you need!

  59. ive called the hotline once and they were really nice and the lady just was talking to me and being really comforting

  60. I called once i got a really really nice lady who listened me cuz i needed to really talk with someone and i fwlt 20x better! The second time i called i was have suicidal thoughts and i needed to talk again the guy didnt really care or listen he just hung up on me at the end of the call.

  61. I really need to call them but I don’t need the cops at my door my parents would be really mad at me, they want me to be prefect.
