Trans Lifeline

Trans Lifeline is the only hotline set up to serve trans people in crisis where all the operators are themselves transgender. On top of combatting the suicide epidemic, the organization also provides financial support for legal name changes and other court services. If you or someone you know is struggling with identity-related issues, check out their site or call the number for help.

    The Crisis Text Line

Watch their video to see more of their mission. And, if you’re in a crisis currently, text “Hello” to #741741 and connect with a crisis counselor today.
