Calls to our toll-free helpline are answered by trained volunteers who can discuss issues with callers, offer referrals to resources, or match callers with another peer counselor with similar experiences. Our "Ask a Genetic Counselor" line allows callers to ask general questions about genetics which will be answered by a board-certified genetic counselor.
