Thank you for visiting IMAlive!

IMAlive is a free, confidential online chat service. All chats are answered by trained volunteers.
Please use a computer for best chat connection (cell phones may cause the chat to disconnect unexpectedly).

Click the link on the bottom of this screen, enter your information, keep your chat window open and wait for a volunteer to join the chat.
During times of high chat volume, a volunteer may not be able to talk with you immediately. If the link below appears offline,
it means that all volunteers are currently talking to the maximum number of chat visitors. We will go back online as soon as at least one volunteer becomes available.
