List of LGBT Friendly Helplines Worldwide

Transgender people face outstanding obstacles when trying to deal with their mental health issues. Not only can transition be extremely difficult to go through, not being able to do so can be even more damaging. I have compiled a list of all the toll free help line numbers I could find around the world. Please share and spread this to everyone you know.

THIS LIST IS ALWAYS IN PROGRESS. IF YOU KNOW OF ANY RESOURCES THAT ARE NOT ON HERE ( BUT SHOULD BE) PLEASE POST IT IN THE COMMENTS AND IT WILL BE ADDED. THANK YOU.

IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL, PLEASE REACH OUT AND SEEK HELP. YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND SHOULDN’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH ANYTHING BY YOURSELF
