All-Options, formerly Backline, uses direct service and social change strategies to promote unconditional, judgment-free support for people in all of their decisions, feelings, and experiences with pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption. We recognize that these issues are complex, but one thing is certain: Everyone deserves to have all options.
According to mental health experts, suicide is a preventable cause of death. We strive to offer new technology that encourages individuals who are not willing to seek traditional mental health treatments to get help, and thereby lower current world suicide rates. Our sole purpose is to offer quick, proven and permanent endorsed help to any individual who has become emotionally compromised, and to those who may consider self-harm as an option regardless of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion and/or region of the world. Stigma lies as a major obstacle for those seeking needed help; those individuals who experience intense emotional suffering. Therefore, we address the need for privacy as our primary way of attracting the otherwise unreachable. Stigma issues receive attention by our organization with phone and internet self-help methodology in behavioral modification that does not require repeat visits, long-term therapies, medications, future appointments and/or referrals. Einstein stated that insanity is repeating the same mistake over and over again expecting a different outcome. For most people, cognitive therapy is not a practical solution. Medicating the emotionally compromised as a means of managing depression is irremediable, and treatments that cause damage to the brain's normal functionality boarders on unethical experimental research. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to continue thinking outside of historically-comfortable parameters by researching, studying and implementing different methods which address the cause of dissociative mental illnesses. When taking advantage of naturally-occurring human phenomena in brain functionality with a concentration on behavioral modification, we maximize the basic human potential for every willing human being.

In 2010, we started Love is Louder with The Jed Foundation to amplify a simple message – love and support are louder than any voice that tries to bring us down. Our movement started at a time when there was a lot of anger and confusion online after a series of tragedies involving bullying. Six years later, hundreds of thousands of you have grown the movement around the world. We’ve relaunched Love is Louder as a community because we want to turn our message into action. We want individuals and communities all over the globe to commit to taking actions that make us all feel more connected and supported.
