Get Help

What if another member or myself is in crisis?

Sisterhood Of Secrets makes the following unaffiliated resources available for those who are facing a crisis, including free 24 hour, 7 day a week hotlines. Help is always available from caring professionals, and is often a quick phone call away. No one on this site should attempt to resolve a crisis – there are trained professionals standing by to provide any help you might need. This website is unable to provide the help you or a loved one may need if in a crisis situation. Please recognize that someone facing a crisis is best served through professional help.

Sistherhood Of Secrets cares deeply about our users, and created this very site as a result of seeing the power of connecting with others who understood our life’s challenges best. However, we do not have the means or the resources to intervene in a crisis situation (in fact, we don’t collect names, addresses, or phone numbers, so we cannot physically intervene). If your personal safety is threatened, call the police. If you’re in a crisis, please call any of the numbers above. We are not affiliated with any of the above organizations, and do not imply endorsement. We are merely providing the links as a service to the community.
