  • Hateful, disruptive or hurtful language directed at other chatters will not be tolerated. Continued abusive or hurtful language will result in being “Muted” in the Group Chat, and possibly being Kicked Out or Banned from the chat room for varying lengths of time.
  • Volunteers and Staff are committed to providing encouragement, support and referrals to any teens that enter the Chat. When it comes to enforcing agreements, we are not “out to get” anyone, but are simply trying to preserve the Chat as a safe and helpful place for teens in crisis.
