Better Out Than In

Slider

Growing up can be tough and being LGBTI+ can bring more challenges. Taking the brave step of opening up to someone about your worries and fears, no matter how big or small, is worth it. This hub allows you to check out a range of face to face, online, phone and text supports and discover which one feels best for you.

24/7 ANONYMOUS TEXT SUPPORT

If you need support about any type of crisis, you can chat in confidence, 24/7 with a trained crisis volunteer over text. Connect with a trained volunteer who will listen to you and help you move towards feeling better. Here’s how the support service works:

  1. Text LGBTI+ to 086 1800 280 anytime when you need support. Standard SMS rates may apply.
  2. A trained volunteer will listen to you and help you think more clearly, enabling you to know that you can take the next step to feel better.

You can find support for urgent issues such as bullying, relationship breakdown, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and abuse or assault. This is a confidential service, using a secure online platform and is free to use.

Text LGBTI+ to 086 1800 280 to begin. Standard SMS rates may apply.
