IMAlive is a free, confidential, and secure crisis chat. Please use a computer for the best chat connection (cell phones may cause the chat to disconnect unexpectedly).
All chats are answered by trained volunteers with the alias Alex.
During times of high chat volume, a volunteer may not be able to talk with you immediately. If the link below appears offline, 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.
If this is a medical emergency, dial 911 or a local emergency number for assistance.
