Suicide prevention chats are real-time interactions between a person in crisis and a trained responder.
These suicide prevention chats are available through several organizations, some 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
When accessing an online chat, you may be asked for general location information (such as a zip code) to try to refer you to services in your area.
You are also typically asked to agree to the terms and services of this type of chatting through software.
