More About #4Help

How Does #4Help Work? (Continued)

Our service will rely upon voluntary recommendations from our users to create a one through five star rating for each hotline and helpline. Once we have a sufficient amount of ratings to have a statistically viable recommendation, our system will provide our ratings to our callers and website visitors. 

How Do I Access the #4Help Directory?

Anyone in the United States can call #4Help [#44357] from a Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile cell phone [click here for a complete listing of cell phone networks] or call 855.4Help.org [(855) 443-5767] from ANY phone to access the #4Help directory of local, state, regional, national and governmental hotlines and helplines encompassing all 50 states.

Our service will recognize the general area that you are calling from. When our service picks up, we will give you easy to follow instructions about how to request the hotline or helpline that you are looking for. Our database of hotlines and helplines is all inclusive. We have added and continue to add all vetted hotlines and helplines to our database. 

Our service will rely upon voluntary recommendations from our users to create a one through five star rating for each hotline and helpline. Once we have a sufficient amount of ratings to have a statistically viable recommendation, our system will provide our ratings to our callers and website visitors. 

Why Did We Build #4Help?

The impetus for #4Help is in based largely on our interpretation of the intent of recent United States legislation, H.R.2345 – 115th Congress (2017-2018), which established that there is a need for the allocation of “a simple, easy-to-remember dialing code for use as a national suicide prevention and mental health crisis hotline system would be in the strongest interests of individuals requiring the assistance furnished by prevention and crisis hotlines”

Open Source

 

Research included many open source tools, for which we are grateful to have had access to. For this reason, our database will be an open source tool for researchers, students and others interested in data about this industry.
