Free Hotlines

Free Hotlines are usually available day and night, 24/7. You don't have to be having suicidal thoughts to make use of a hotline. As you can see, this is a long list, and includes a wide variety of issues. You can call anonymously - just to connect with a friendly voice when you're feeling alone or afraid.

These calls are all FREE! Be sure to dial the "1" first.

I cannot verify the accuracy of all of these phone numbers, but most should be current. I have no affiliation with these phone services and only offer this as a free directory.
