For times when we’re not available or in the event of an emergency, here are some useful numbers.
The following contacts are for the United States.  Other countries numbers may vary.

It’s an emergency

If you don’t feel safe, feel suicidal or may have harmed yourself, you need urgent medical help and should:

  • Call 911

Ask someone to help if you’re unable to do this yourself.
