Get your phone numbers right. When people come on here looking for help they don't want to call a number and have the first one they pick come up as prank line. Thanks for the major slam to any courage that had been worked up.

Please let me know what number you used that did not work. Sometimes the information changes and I am unaware. I'll update the info immediately. You can contact me at

I'm sorry for any inconvenience or emotional pain this caused you. I try to keep everything updated as best I can and would never intentionally include anything that's detrimental to readers.

Thank you for those who have sent me messages to let me know that some of the links/numbers were no longer working.

The list has been updated today (December 27th, 2011) and all links and numbers were working at the time of update (though I am unable to verify numbers out of the USA).

If you find a link or number that doesn't work, please let me know and I will fix it or remove it if the new site/number is not available.

If you know of a resource you feel should be listed here please send me an email at or leave a comment in this post.

Please note that many of the phone numbers listed are not open 24 hours.

If you are in immediate need of help please dial 911 (or the emergency number for your area).
