Trevor Chat is designed to be accessed through a computer, so you may have technical difficulties if you are using a smartphone or tablet.
Instead, you can try the Lifeline or Trevor Text (see below).
Trevor Chat—Available 7 Days A Week, (3pm–10pm ET / Noon–7pm PT). You can usually expect to wait just a few minutes to speak to a counselor, but if we are very busy the wait can be up to a half hour.
If you need to speak to someone sooner, please call the Trevor Lifeline at 1-866-488-7386.
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.
Always delete the conversation after you finish to ensure that no one else can access your information. Once you are, the advocate will encourage you to explain your situation.
