I just warn and urge people to beware of the boys town national hotline...this is a so-called 'suicide or crisis' hotline and a line desgined to help people in crisis, but on numerous occasions upon calling in for help, I and a few others I know have been treated very badly by the so-called 'counselors' there that work on the phone. they are abusive to people calling in, and mistreat them as well, and anyone who is in a suicidal state, might be at risk if having to talk to people who are this sociopathic in nature. I have been hung up on, manipulated, harassed, told things are 'your fault' literally just abused like crazy for calling in to try to get help for abuse or for counseling, or told rudely not to call back...

The women that work at that place, are severely screwed up themselves, and are the ones who are in serious need of therapy-- they are psychopathic in nature and after abusing callers, just hang up on them--this I think is a very dangerous situation for anyone who is suicidal or in need of help calling into this hotline-- it isn't a hotline that helps people but wants to throw them into deeper crisis or whatever problems they are having make them worse.. something needs to be done about this hotline and I think an investigation needs to be done regarding the 'counselors' and counseling techniques the people use there-- they also do not care that their cousnelors are doing this to callers-- I talked to a supervisor who just said "we can't do much about each specific call and I'll pass your concerns over to the administration"...they don't care to reprimand counselors who are abusive to callers....andw ill continue to allow these counselors to do this to people and put their lives or anythign at risk...the boys town national hotline or any hotline that has counselors that are abusive to people calling in in this way needs to be shut down in my opinion...beware of this hotline...
