Hello, and welcome to an extensive list of a bunch of resources that I (and a lot of my friends in and outside of Haven) have compiled and are here for your convenience. My hope is for this list to grow and flourish, so send anything relevant to either me, Zen, moony, or another staff member or moderator who can edit this.


Heads up! Please be careful using the following resources if your PC or device is being monitored by potential abuser(s)!
(It's also worth noting that under these circumstances: you should probably be browsing these in Private mode. "CTRL + Shift + P" is used for FireFox, and "CTRL + Shift + N" is used in Chrome. This way, nobody has access to your browsing history!)



Table of contents:

Here are some resources for problems that may be affecting you.

Suicide Prevention
Mental Health

RESOURCES FOR MENTAL HEALTH:

Firstly our two servers, The Haven and The Haven Lite offer a peer to peer mental health support system and community.

If you're suffering from any sort of mental issue or substance abuse, SAMHSA is probably where you should go.
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)'s job is to help you deal with whatever mental or drug-related issue you're currently suffering from.

SAMHSA provides several helplines and services that you can call: SAMHSA's National Helpline, phone number 1-800-662-HELP (4357), TTY: 1-800-487-4889, is the number you should call if you have a mental or drug issue you're suffering from: they will provide information and refer you to people who can help you.

SAMHSA also offers the Disaster Distress Helpline, a service that "provides crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters." You can "[c]all 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor."

SAMHSA also provides a way to locate physicians and treatment programs designed to help those who are addicted/dependent upon opiods, heroin, and prescription pain killers.
UK: UK National Mental Health Telephone Helplines

If you're having a crisis and you need to text somebody: If you're dealing with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying, suicidal thoughts, or anything else, why not try the Crisis Text Line?

Just text HOME to 741741 to get started.
Works free-of-charge with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

If you need a therapist: It is advised to find a mental health professional who is fully trained and qualified to assist you!
BetterHelp, you can quickly find a licensed therapist who will be able to help you more than many of these links. BetterHelp promises that they "... provide anyone facing life challenges with easy, discreet and affordable access to professional counseling from a licensed therapist. And, apparently, you can talk to the therapist online!

In addition, they also have a VERY nice help page, filled with numbers for all sorts of help services and hotlines, that you can access at this link: Get Help Now.
(They also have apps for iPhone and Android, if you don't want to use the website.)
