A member suggested that we create a sticky thread that will work as a resource for gymnasts and parents who are looking for help, or support, when they are in crisis.

Please add any relevant links and phones numbers here. I suggest putting the country at the top of your post to avoid confusion, and long distance charges.

There is the Kids Help Phone which is available 24/7 for anyone under age 18. Can be just to talk, not necessarily a crisis situation but they will help in that case too. So even if you just need to talk or whatever.

1-800-668-6868

There is info and a chat option on the website.
