How It Works
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:
THE SHORT VERSION
- Text HOME to 741741 from anywhere in the United States, anytime, about any type of crisis.
- A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds, all from our secure online platform.
- The volunteer Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment.
