Existing members who have not yet used the new chat will have to create new user accounts. This is a moderated chat room for those on the transgender spectrum as well as their family and friends. Our purpose here is to provide support and, above all, prevent suicides. Over half of us on the transgender spectrum will have attempted suicide at least once before the age of 20. To further our mission of reducing this rate, many of our chat staff members have become certified in suicide prevention.
Everything you discuss with us here is held in strictest confidentiality. Because we offer support online only, we are not able to directly intervene in the way that some hotline operators can. Our staff cannot call you, so please never share your phone number. Suicide prevention services are available here for people on the transgender spectrum only. If you are suicidal and are not transgender, please call 1-800-784-2433.
Before joining chat, you must be familiar with the rules.
