Online Chats

Online chatting is a good and free way to get help without having to talk to someone face to face or over the phone. You can feel safe to tell it all to trained listeners behind the safety of your computer or mobile device. If you are worried about someone finding out your identity online, there are Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that hide your online identity and allow you chat safely. Every day many people opt to use VPNs to browse online anonymously (even on public wifi) and to legally gain access to blocked sites. They are generally very user friendly and the sign up process is usually quite quick. You can find trusted VPNs  > HERE

Sometimes we just need to get away from it all and its not possible in real life. In your virtual life however you can go anywhere you want, do anything you want and be anyone you want. It’s a great place to take a load off when you need a distraction. Join a free 3D virtual world  > HERE
Note: Use this as a mild distraction only. This is not a substitute for suicide hotlines, suicide chats or professional therapy.
