Will crisis line send ES for eating disorder?

Postby LucyTate » Wed Oct 23, 2019 11:46 pm

Hi all.

I have been struggling a lot lately with eating disorder related things, as well as other stuff.

If I were to contact a crisis line and tell them about my destructive eating habits, would they send emergency services?

Thank you! <3

I don't know what country you are in, but my guess would be that it would be highly unlikely. If you said you'd just consumed a bottle of poison or something they would send emergency services or if you expressed some sort of serious medical emergency physical symptoms but other than that probably not. If you are worried, you could just block your number before calling the line. It is good to get support where you can. In some countries there is an eating disorder support crisis line also, so it might be worth investigating if you have that kind of support where you are. They will be experienced with taking calls and it may be an avenue to help you... A regular crisis line may be helpful to you also...

Take care
