Please do not use this platform to report situations requiring urgent attention

Ditch the Label's support community is not designed to be a platform to report situations requiring urgent attention, this includes situations of danger and suicide. It can take some time for a support mentor to review your request and so in these cases, we need to refer to alternative services.

Please note that we do our best to connect you with the most relevant support services in your region, however, we cannot be held responsible for the advice and support that is provided by third parties. 

If you or somebody you know is in danger: 

Firstly, if you, or somebody you know is in a dangerous situation, please call emergency services as a matter of urgency. In the UK, this number is 999, in the USA, 911. If you are unsure of the exact number in your location, please search "{country name} emergency services phone number" on Google.
