The Trevor Project Helpline
The Trevor Project is a nonprofit endeavor created by the makers of TREVOR (on IMDB)to promote tolerance for gay and questioning youth, and to aid in suicide prevention among that group. Statistics have shown that gay teens are three times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers, and The Trevor Project hopes, through its efforts, to prevent some of those tragedies from occurring.
On August 11, 1998, The Trevor Project launched The Trevor Helpline, the first round-the-clock national toll-free suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth. It's open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Teens with nowhere to turn can call 866.4.U.TREVOR (866-488-7386), where they can talk to trained counselors, find local resources and take important steps on their way to becoming healthy adults. All calls are free and confidential.
