If you are thinking about or planning to harm yourself or others you may be in crisis.

Ray is not equipped to support crisis situations.

We are so happy you found Ray. Our sessions are meant to provide emotional support and safe spaces for those undergoing stress. We however, are not the right platform if you are in crisis or are experiencing a more severe mental health condition. If you are in crisis please reach out to a crisis line for appropriate support.
