The largest, most reliable network of verified helplines in the world

When a user in your community contacts crisis support, you need to feel confident that help is on the other side – not a dial tone.

Yet, helpline websites are littered with inactive phone numbers and broken links, putting your community further at risk. On some commonly used websites, 50% of the information is out-of-date.

ThroughLine is the only product to vet every single service, as well as verify their information through working with the service directly. Our verified helpline network is 1,300 services strong, so you can rest knowing your users are in safe hands, wherever they may be.

No barriers, free for all

Private and confidential, always

People need to feel safe to access help.

That’s why we never collect the personally identifiable information of users.

People can feel confident to access help securely and anonymously – and you can feel safe knowing that user's data stays in their hands.

Why helplines for your online community?

Helplines, also known as hotlines or crisis call centres, provide immediate, emotional support by text (sms), online chat (instant message) or voice call.

Helplines have been found to measurably reduce suicidal ideation in those contacting them (King et al., 2003; Gould et al., 2007; Tyson et al., 2016).

They are a free and accessible way to get immediate help with distressing feelings, thoughts of suicide, abusive situations, depression or grief.

Helpline referrals are an essential approach for suicide prevention and crisis support, recommended by the World Health Organization and used by major internet platforms, globally.
