    We discourage people from using email to communicate with us about personal problems. Email is not a secure or confidential medium; others may be able to read your message and any reply. In addition, we find email communications are less useful than in-depth, face-to-face contact. We cannot guarantee that your message will be read right away or that we will be able to respond in a timely manner. Do not use email for crises or emergency situations.
