Send to a Friend

Are there any websites where a person who is contemplating suicide can go, for a kind of "live chat" with someone about it, and be totally anonymous?

No, it is definitely not me who feels that way, but I have an online friend who has been talking about that, and I am really alarmed and frightened by her comments about ending her life.

Calling a suicide prevention telephone number is something she won’t consider doing, because she fears that the call would be traced and someone in a white suit would haul her away.

I’m seriously worried about my friend, and would welcome some advice regarding this, because I don’t know how to proceed with her, and frankly, I fear saying the wrong thing to her, that might “trigger” her making an attempt.
