Wonderful most excellent stuff. How do we make it simple for those in need? This world wide stuff could be confusing to those tuning on the WWW from anywhere in the world? I think.

Rickie ...

We are a World organisation. We'll provide what we can. We will have to let the person in difficulty know enough to contact an agency near them.

If the crisis is so severe that the person in, say Ecuador, rings up a care centre in Germany because they just don't know better -- we can't do much about that.

The international site for Samaritans that I posted is a good place to start for anyone in many countries if we don't have links for their specific country.

International Association for Suicide Prevention..

Select a continent, then a country and it gives you the number for a crisis centre.

Exactly that is why I feel were should be cautious . This is very very good thing. Lets be cautious that's all. Let just just go slow. We are a small community. It's not time to take on the world yet.

Thought this was interesting. A "warm" line to help people feel heard without the pressure of being qualified to deal with potential crisis (which we shouldnt be anyway)

Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

I really feel like this is more along the lines of what a temple crisis hotline would be. Then, if the situations are beyond just that then the person responding should have easy access to a list of places to get additional help. Great post. B)

That would still leave us with the issue of who would respond and how would we make sure they don't get overwhelmed.

If a few people volunteered, a small team could do it. Two or three? Who is responsible for the line. One might send a request to volunteer to that person.

I am assuming that people submitting to the Warm Line will be anonymous. Will people responding on the warm line be anonymous also? Just curious.
