    Congrats on the BLSW, yet the photo is not appropriate for this suicide prevention wiki. Help us in your work by providing suicide prevention and intervention crisis line info for your area. Your additions will be greatly appreciated.

    Congrats again.

    I find it difficult to separate out sexual assault crisis lines from suicide prevention crisis lines, for sexual assault is often a reason for suicide. Yet, the definition of ISP directory is for suicide prevention crisis lines, not a directory that includes crisis lines also for sexual assault. Much to my chagrin, I have deleted a Rape Crisis Line from Utah added by an anonymous wiki contributor.

    Angela entered on the home page from a Twitter post:"Don't do somethink permanantly stupid for being temporarlly upset." I wrote her the following about it.

    Hi Angela,

    I actually decided to delete your contribution "Don't do somethink permanantly stupid for being temporarlly upset," because it is a nice sentiment, yet it is a negative statement for those thinking of suicude. People who are suicidal are not "temporarily upset." They are in a great deal of overwhelming pain. And it does not feel temporary or stupid to try be rid of the pain. Talking with someone is the best way to help someone in that amount of pain. Negative sentiments do not help. Thank you for your thoughts about ISP Wiki and look forward to your future contributions.

    My response:

    "It saddens me that you feel the way you do about yourself. The real beauty is not how we look to other peope, or how others think we look. The real beauty is in you. You are beautiful. See yourself as beautiful, just the way you are. You need to talk to someone, so try one of the hotlines in your area. Or try one of the national hotlines: 800-273-TALK (8255) or 800-442-HOPE (4673) or 800-SUIC…

    LGBTQ International Resources

    September 29, 2011 by Jcather

    Breaking this separate listing into countries and regions. Listed it alphabetically in the index, just above Mexico, for the time being. May put each country's listings with each country. For now, will keep in current order.

    The LGBTQ United Kingdom needs to be totally reformatted. I also took out some initial listings that where not support or hotline resources. This was originally a category; I made it a page.
