Available every night, 7 days a week, from 6pm to 10pm. Chat creates a safe online venue where people can reach out for help. This will be an outlet for populations traditionally hard to engage in face-to-face mental health care such as teens, those who are homebound, people with social anxieties and phobias, and people with hearing or speech impairments.
