Welcome to the Universal Internet Help Resource! Put together by my friends and I, this is supposed to function as a quick reference for people who need help.
Currently, the Help Resource is organized by what problem you're experiencing, so that you can quickly experience relief from that problem.
Just below this, the most-frequently-encountered problems are listed uncategorized, as this information is more-frequently-utilized than other information.
All information on this page, besides properties copyrighted by others, is free for you to use for your own purposes, and copy. It's yours.
Just spread it everywhere, I dun' care.

Before I say anything else: Be careful using the following websites if you suspect your computer is being monitored by your abuser.
To quickly and easily find a domestic violence shelter near you, visit this site: DomesticShelters.org
. They also provide hotlines and other resources near you.
If you're dealing with domestic abuse / violence, then this app may help.
Called the ICE BlackBox Digital Witness, anything you record with this app is sent directly to law enforcement. You can use it to record your abuser, and the app will provide a permanent evidentiary record that cannot be deleted, as it's uploaded to the cloud. It is currently available for Android
— An amazing resource, this is an INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORY of Domestic Violence Agencies. Has all the info you could ever need. For ease of use, I recommend using the Countries A-Z listing
I'm still compiling these resources, but, you can search for "[U.S. State name] domestic abuse coalition" to get to a website that will have everything you need.
For your convenience, I also have a (right now, only partially) reconstructed list of an old, now-unavailable domestic violence hotline resource. I'm going to be verifying and reconstructing this list myself over the coming weeks and months. If you'd like to access it right now, it is available right here
If you're suffering from any sort of mental issue or substance abuse, SAMHSA is where you should go. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
(SAMHSA)'s job is to help you deal with whatever mental or drug-related issue you're currently suffering from.

, TTY: 1-800-487-4889
, is the number you should call if you have a mental or drug issue you're suffering from: they will provide information and refer you to people who can help you.
SAMHSA also offers the Disaster Distress Helpline
, a service that "provides crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters." You can "[c]all 1-800-985-5990
or text TalkWithUs to 66746
to connect with a trained crisis counselor."
also provides a way to locate physicians and treatment programs designed to help those who are addicted/dependent upon opiods, heroin, and prescription pain killers.
You may also try the links below, but I would recommend SAMHSA.
— provides helpline and state-by-state directory of addiction recovery centers, as well as a search to find treatment providers, detox centers and aftercare, and, private helplines!

to help you! Through BetterHelp
