All conversations with peer advocates via phone, chat or text are free and confidential. You will never be asked for your name or other contact information, but an advocate may ask for your age and city to find local resources for you.
You do NOT have to download anything to use it. The live chat IM-style is not a public chat room.
Check out the Quick Chat Guide tabs below to help make your chat experience the best it can be! That minimizes the chance of issues like messages disappearing or the conversation ending abruptly. If your situation is extremely complex or you are having technical difficulties, consider contacting us by phone. When to Chat Chats move more quickly when both you and the advocate can focus and respond promptly.
But try not to chat when you need to be doing something else or will have to step away from the computer. We are a crisis line, so be aware that our chats timeout if they are inactive for too long.

What to Say You know your situation best, so the more you can tell us about your needs, the better. Using a lot of capital or uppercase letters may be difficult to read. We also ask that you use respectful language; our advocates are real people just like you! Why to Reach Out Everyone needs someone to talk to once in a while, but if your situation is not a crisis or is not related to abuse or healthy relationships, we might not be the most relevant resource for you. We do not provide criticism, give advice, or tell our chatters what to do.
I am at least 13 years or older and have a parents permission to use this site. I understand that the chat is intended for casual venting and not for mental illness diagnosing or psychological therapy. I understand that as a listener I am not to perform the role of a real therapist and will refer any user to seek appropriate help from a therapist if the case permits it. If you find any bugs with our new chat, please contact us via our Facebook Page. If you're having technical issues with the chat please check out our help section.
It Is Not About You Listening is a hard job to take on, and as Listeners, we voluntarily take it upon ourselves to, on top of our own lives and issues, take on the issues of the Venter and attempt to impart whatever unbiased wisdom we may possess concerning their problems.
This is the essence of peer counseling, and it is true that helping others does help us to help ourselves, in the end, it is not about just ourselves; peer counseling is about helping each other.
People come to BlahTherapy for help. Though it is true that sometimes people need "tough love" and I have been in the place of giving that tough love, all advice given should always be with unconditional positive regard for the Venter; they are a human being and they can improve themselves if they set themselves to the task, most of them are here because either they do not believe in themselves or because nobody has believed in them.
As Listeners, it is on us to believe in the ability of the Venter to make themselves better, to take them at their word, give them the benefit of the doubt, and to show them that it is entirely possible for someone to believe in them. Negative regard achieves absolutely nothing.

It is impossible to shame or degrade a person into improving. Negative regard does nothing more than communicate negativity, and the Venter likely already feels badly enough about themselves. Some Venters' issue IS that they have no faith or positive regard for themselves! Show the Venter unconditional positive regard, and you will not only make their life that much easier, you will become a better Listener.
One And Done Is Never Enough As Listeners, we hear about every terrible act of which mankind is capable, and this can take its' toll on us, but it is important to remember your Venters, to treat them as people, this means following up.
