FOR IMMEDIATE HELP, Call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Available 24 Hours a Day / 7 Days a Week
BTD is not a 24-hour helpline, nor are we trained mental health professionals. We hope to serve as a bridge to help.
If this is an emergency or if you are worried that you or someone you know may be at risk for suicide, please call your local authorities (911). The hotlines below are 24 hours and are confidential.
Don't give up. You are not alone.
Regardless of what you may be facing, reaching out for help from a counselor or calling a hotline is a great place to start. Even though The Brett Thomas Doussan Foundation believes in the power of treatment, you are responsible for selecting the provider or treatment. The Brett Thomas Doussan Foundation cannot accept responsibility for any of the services provided by these or any other providers.
