don't wait.

If you feel like hurting yourself or someone else,
please don't wait to talk to someone. 


I check voicemail regularly and typically return phone calls within 24 hours for messages left on Tuesdays through Fridays, and by the end of the day Tuesday for messages left late Friday through Monday. However, if you feel like you cannot wait to have your call returned and need to speak to someone right away, please call the 24-hour telephone counseling line at:

(512) 472-4357 / (512) 472-HELP.
