According to reports, almost half of people who are transgender will at least attempt suicide during their lifetimes. Yet many times, when they call suicide hotlines, they run in to people who are unfamiliar with what it even means to be transgender.

The phone number is 877-565-8860. I am adding it to my resource list.
