Seeking Help: Useful Contact Information

Here some national hotline numbers in the United States.  Insight, Outside In is all about taking care of yourself.  It can be really hard to talk about issues with someone you know, even if you know the person is supportive.  These hotlines are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Remember that private messaging with IOI is also an option, but I can’t guarantee my availability.
Please know that you are cared for and valued.  You deserve to get the help you need.  You deserve wellness.  

In the event of an emergency, including thoughts or feelings of suicide or self-harm, or thoughts or feelings to harm someone else, CALL 911 OR YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY NUMBER, OR PROCEED TO YOUR NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM.
