TheHopeLine is an off-air chat hotline created by DMLive host, internationally recognized youth communicator Dawson McAllister, where one-on-one conversations effect change in the lives of teenagers and young adults. The volume of people effectively served by TheHopeLine is significant, given that September is National Suicide Prevention Month.
DMLive is a three-hour weekly show heard on over 50 stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The call-in talk show provides a forum where teenagers and young adults can talk about the problems they are facing, including: divorce, depression, cutting, suicide, drug addictions, eating disorders and family issues.

TheHopeLine has over a dozen vetted partner organizations to provide longer-term care and services to those seeking help, advice and healing.
Benztown President Dave “Chachi” Denes said: “DMLive and TheHopeLine provide a lifeline and a message of hope that every community can benefit from. Dawson, his co-host Jai McVay, and DMLive are clearly connecting with teens and young adults in a profound and powerful way, as evidenced by the number of suicide interventions in the month of August alone.”
Host Dawson McAllister adds: “There are so many teenagers and young adults who need help, and we are grateful that DMLive, TheHopeLine and our station partners are working together to provide that help when they most need it. We thank the programmers and other leaders in radio who join us every week to make a life-changing difference for people and families in communities across the country.”
