Speak Your Mind
For those who would rather type than talk, 2NDFLOOR has an anonymous online message board. The message board is a place where you can talk about whatever is on your mind—stuff like problems at home or school, issues with friends, and even topics like stress, anxiety, sexuality, drugs, violence or abuse—basically, whatever is on your mind. If you have an emergency, call your local police or 911.
