Resources During the Hotline’s Break


Our hotline operators will be on break from Dec. 18 to Jan. 1. We understand that the holidays can be particularly difficult for our communities. We’ve put together this resource list that we hope can provide solace during this challenging time. 

Getting Through The Holidays

Hotlines and Warmlines

Please note that, in most cases, these hotlines and warmlines can provide alternatives to police intervention and avoid using police. It’s always good to ask about their policies before disclosing information that could lead to an involuntary intervention or forced hospitalization. Some utilize other first responders, such as mobile crisis units with mental health professionals, who are mandated reporters and can administer psychiatric assessments that may trigger forced hospitalization.

Self-help and Coping Strategies

Supporting a Friend in Crisis

Providers and Additional Resources

The majority of these resources are not affiliated with Trans Lifeline, and we can’t guarantee accuracy, services, or products. Community accountability is important, so if there’s something we should know about a resource listed here or if you’d like to recommend a resource, let us know.
