Why Hotlines Need Updating

Line Art


Keeping a list of Suicide Hotlines on your site is a problem
that requires some extra work and responsibility
Most Webmasters Don't Know
that the Hotlines need frequent updating !
hotline numbers listed by well meaning webmasters.


Here's Why...

  • Hotline numbers frequently change or go obsolete due to loss of funding, organizational changes, & area code changes.
What happens to the old phone numbers ?

They get reassigned !

  • The new number can belong to any kind of business, personal residence, fax number, modem, who knows!!

Suicidal Callers can get

  • out of service numbers,
  • someone's home number
  • or even a sex hotline !
  • This has happened to lots of numbers.

Recently an organization lost their web site and a porn site went up in it's place !!

A number in Hawaii went to a casket store ! Yikes !
