The TrevorSpace Book Club's LIVE Webchat with Jodi Picoult Answering YOUR Questions is TODAY!

It's the finale event for our Trevor Project's TrevorSpace Book Club preview title - and to celebrate over two weeks of great discussions over at TrevorSpace, we're putting on a LIVE virtual question and answer session - where you get to ask Jodi Picoult, author of the incredible SING YOU HOME, your questions! We're all being hosted by Advocate.com, and I'll be moderating the Q & A, which you can watch live in the window below (or check out the archived edition after it airs!)

So pull up a virtual chair, enjoy some delicious imaginary lemonade (or steaming tea, depending on where you are in the world right now) and chime in with your questions for some very REAL answers!

Remember, if you need someone to talk to, The Trevor Project has people ready to take your call. (866) 4-U-TREVOR

My thanks to Jodi, Laura, the Youth Advisory Council, and everyone at the Trevor Project, and of course Advocate.com for being a team with me to pull something this amazing off!

(I put together the silly image above from Jodi's publicity pic, my photo by Rita Crayon Huang, and the chairs on lawn pic was from here.)

Is the Trevor lifeline just for youth in crisis, or is it if you just need someone to talk to? If it's only for youth in crisis, is there a phone number if you just need to talk? I'm not suicidal, and I've never considered self harm very seriously, but sometimes I just need to talk to someone.

I just called and spoke with Steve over at the Trevor Lifeline (1-866-4-U-TREVOR which is 1-866-488-7386) and he said that yes, they can take non-crisis calls.

He told me there's also the National GLBT hotline - it's not 24 hours like the Trevor lifeline (M-F 1-9pm Pacific Time and Sat 9am-2pm) and that's 888-843-4564

And then he shared that there's a National Youth Talkline for GLBT youth under 25, which is M-F 5pm-9pm Pacific time. Their number is 800-246-7743

The volunteer I spoke to was super nice and very easy to talk to...
Go ahead and call, and share what's going on.

Be kind to yourself.
