CRISIS TEXT LINE

Crisis Text Line provides free, confidential, 24-hour counseling with more than 600 trained volunteer counselors around the world. Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via the medium people already use and trust: text.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Text 741-741 from anywhere in the USA, anytime, about any type of crisis.
  2. A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds quickly.
  3. The volunteer Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment.

Established over two years ago, the Crisis Text Line provides free, confidential, 24-hour counseling with more than 600 trained volunteer counselors around the world. The counselors receive/see an initial message from the texter and respond based on severity rather than chronologically. Although the service has received little publicity, counselors have already exchanged more than 15 million messages with individuals in distress for a variety of issues to include sexual assault, suicide, eating disorders, stress, etc.

Across the country, young people are facing pressures from social, economic and academics areas, resulting in an alarming prevalence of anxiety, loneliness and suicidal ideation. Although it is impossible to reduce these pressures, it is possible for people to get help.
