Default What do you think the suicide hotline says when they answer?

Like....whatís the default opening statement? I bet they donít even reference suicide.

Iíd call to find out but I donít wanna waste a line someone might actually need. That said....Iím sure they deal with many prank calls so if one of you is scumbag enough to get me an answer:


1-800-273-8255

Iíll be in your debt.

It must be the standard "Thanks for reaching out. What brings you to reach out today?" or something similar.

downplay the situation and try to be friendly and casual to make them feel at ease??

or be intense and go straight to the point and like, "DON'T DO IT, MAN!!! DON'T DO IT!!" scream loudly at their ears and shit.

i would assume it's kinda like the former...

They probably answer like any call center job of which I've had tons of. Something standard like "Thank you for calling the suicide hotline, my name is such and such, how can I help you?"
