The live chat (IM-style) is not a public chat room.
We use an internal messaging system specifically for young adults who need to contact a peer advocate — it is NOT a general chat messenger such as MSN Messenger, AIM, Yahoo Live Chat, Gchat or i Chat.
Peer advocates can connect you to resources in your area, provide you with helpful websites, help you create a plan to stay safe or just listen to your concerns.
All conversations with peer advocates via phone, chat or text are free and confidential.
During the call, your peer advocate will work with you to come up with solutions that best meet your needs.
Whether you are just leaving an abusive relationship or not sure if your relationship is unhealthy, advocates have received extensive training to help you determine the answer that best fits your life.
Please make sure you are in a safe space before you text. When you call, be prepared for the advocate to first ask if you are in a safe place to talk.
