Was your call to an “anonymous” and “confidential” help line traced? Did you get a surprise visit by police after your call? Did the police take you to the psychiatric hospital against your will? This is standard policy and practice with many major help lines, including the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you’ve ever gotten a surprise visit after calling a help line, I’d like to hear you story — please get in touch!
