Those numbers don't help anyone.

Those numbers are part of the facts, Gemma. Knowing the facts, the resources, education, are I believe important requisites for anyone trying to deal with this very important problem, one with often very painful consequences.
May I kindly ask you how better we might go about this? Maybe there are better ways.
Have a pleasant and hopefully peaceful day!

The numbers do help. A few years back I almost killed myself when my daughter was home. They calmed me down and got me help

I meant those hotlines don't help in rape situations. I called numerous of those hotlines, they never did or said anything that helped me in any way.

Everyone has different needs. Some people wont call police, or want to kill themselves because of rape especially if its ******. some people take showers destroying evidence. I wish I called one of these numbers when i was younger, maybe I could have been save and not want to die today

if its what? I can't see that one word, ******
