Trans Lifeline



Trans Lifeline is a groundbreaking crisis hotline staffed exclusively by transgender people, providing peer-to-peer support in North America (Canada and the U.S.). This non-profit centers the lived experience of transgender people and, although the line is primarily for those in a crisis, volunteers help callers with a wide range of issues including suicidality, self-harm, isolation, transition resources, and gender identity.

Call the lines at any time: 

US: (877) 565-8860 Canada: (877) 330-6366
