Hi there

There is a list of resources here cutting-self-injury/topic152642.html#p1574556

We try to avoid listing specific numbers and prefer to link to international based directories of services. Firstly, because we have people all over the world using the forums. What's relevant to one country is useless in another. Secondly, we link to directory sites that are maintained by government, health or other national or sometimes international bodies, because their resources list is reliable. Mainly because links can become out of date quickly where numbers are listed on a lot of individual sites or sites can change.

When someone's in crisis, it's awful to try to access a service or hotline only to find the number no longer works or site/service no longer exists under that name- why it was decided to link to other sources rather than trying to upkeep a directory of our own.
