Here's a list of nationwide emergency and crisis numbers. If you are in crisis, 1st call 911 while you're looking in the front of your local yellow pages. That's where you'll usually find the local suicide prevention hotline or crisis center. You can also try your local Gay-Lesbian Center, which usually offers referrals for counseling, domestic violence and suicide prevention. If you can't get through to any of those, try one of the crisis line below.

RED = 24 HOURS
