Crisis Text Line is a not-for-profit that provides free, anonymous, 24/7 text-based crisis support. Their trained Crisis Counselors can help you navigate rough patches and access local resources. They can even help you if you’re thinking about suicide.
Our research aims to examine the relationship between texters’ perceptions of CTL’s effectiveness (as measured by whether they felt less depressed, overwhelmed, and suicidal after their conversations) and CC reports and surveys.
Whether you’re a college student struggling with busier class schedules, exams or juggling the stress of your financial situation or you have a friend who is going through some major struggles, Crisis Text Line is there to help. All you have to do is text IDM to 741741. You’ll get two automated responses that tell you that your text has been sent and that you’re being connected with a Crisis Counselor who will listen and support you.
The service is free, anonymous, and available 24/7. You can also reach a Crisis Counselor through Facebook Messenger (available in the U.K., Ireland and Canada under different numbers). Your conversation with the Crisis Counselor will be private and confidential. You will never be asked to share any information you don’t want to. And remember, if it’s a crisis to you, it’s a crisis to them. They will never judge you for what’s weighing on you. You can also use the hashtag #hereforyou on Twitter.
Whether you’re worried about your mental health, or a friend is having a hard time, you don’t have to go it alone. A growing number of helplines, also known as crisis lines, are available to talk to you over text message or a phone call. These services are free, anonymous, and confidential.
This year, Crisis Text Line had over 1.3 million conversations with people in need of support. These volunteers are helping people with a wide variety of issues, from suicidal thoughts to grief over a loved one’s death. They are also helping people deal with a number of other issues, including anxiety, addiction, and relationship problems. Unlike other hotlines, they don’t ask for your name or age. They just want to listen to you and help you feel better. They’re here 24/7. All you need to do is text 741741. They’ll be there for you. You can reach them anytime, day or night. They’re a great resource for anyone struggling with mental health, especially young adults.
There are several different crisis lines available, offering texting and phone support. You can use these services to talk to a trained counselor about a wide variety of issues, including depression, relationship trouble, bullying, and suicidal thoughts. These counselors are trained to listen and offer nonjudgmental support. They also know where to refer you to local resources for help.
The number 741741 connects you with a live counselor who can help you get through your crisis. It’s free and anonymous, and it’s available nationwide in the United States. The service can be accessed 24/7.
The volunteers who work at Crisis Text Line are trained to help you deal with your crisis. They can assist you in identifying the best ways to get help, and they’ll never encourage you to hurt yourself or kill yourself. Moreover, they’ll work with you to create a safety plan and will only alert emergency services in extremely dangerous situations.
As a national not-for-profit, Crisis Text Line takes your privacy very seriously. They do not share your personal information with any third party without your consent. This allows you to stay anonymous and safe when reaching out for support.
When you text a keyword to the national number, you’ll be connected with a trained counselor who will listen and respond to your crisis. The crisis counselor can help you de-escalate your situation and provide you with resources to get the help you need.
You can also reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline on Facebook. The service uses Facebook’s secure and encrypted messaging platform to communicate with you. You can also chat with them over Messenger.
Despite this, Crisis Text Line has been accused of exploiting the vulnerable people it serves. A recent investigation by Politico revealed that the organization created a for-profit subsidiary to sell “sentiment analytics” and chatbot-like customer service products using confidential data from their suicide prevention hotline.
