How Do Hotlines Help?
When you’re struggling, support from another person can make a world of difference. However, many people in the LGBTQ+ community may not feel comfortable speaking to a friend or family member about their struggles. Hotlines offer a secure, often confidential, place to contact a trained counselor, crisis line, or peer support service. When you contact our hotline or other hotlines specific to the LGBTQ+ community, you can speak to someone who can relate to your situation. Whether through a phone call or text messages, these individuals know how to help when you need it most.
UAF Legacy Health offers a toll-free hotline service with counselors trained to answer any questions about HIV and other STIs.
