Crisis resources

At BootsWebMD, we want to help our readers when they need it the most. We have compiled a list of crisis resources, helplines and websites that may be of help if you or someone you know may be in trouble.

This list is not a complete list and BootsWebMD does not endorse these services. If you think you need immediate help and cannot speak to a family member, a medical professional or a member of the clergy, please contact one of these organisations, seek medical advice or dial 999 immediately.
