SUICIDE STOP

Worldwide Suicide Prevention Chat Listing

Online chatting is a good and free way to get help without having to talk to someone face to face or over the phone. You can feel safe to tell it all to trained listeners behind the safety of your computer or mobile device. If you are worried about someone finding out your identity online, there are Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that hide your online identity and allow you chat safely. Every day many people opt to use VPNs to browse online anonymously (even on public wifi) and to legally gain access to blocked sites. They are generally very user friendly and the sign up process is usually quite quick.
