IMAlive is the world’s first virtual crisis center. It is the world’s first crisis center where 100% of the volunteers are trained in crisis intervention. In the first year since the launch IMAlive has helped thousands of people in crisis.
The IMAlive Network is currently made possible through the support of the PostSecret community. PostSecret is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard.
Since 1998, The Kristin Brooks Hope Center, founders of 1-800-SUICIDE, have responded to more than 7 million calls and chats from people in crisis and are the pioneers behind the IMAlive Network.
We invite you to listen, learn, enjoy, and take action during our annual fundraiser,Starry Night. Gathering together virtually, on November 8th, are leading voices who will share our efforts and insights to inspire you to unite with us to illuminate the way for awareness, healing, and hope!
