Who We Are

Crisis Text Line started as an idea of several people at DoSomething.org. Watch this TED talk to see where the idea came from.

We have a small yet mighty Board of Directors in addition to an Advisory Board made up of the leading mental health experts in the crisis space, and a Youth Advisory Board.

We also have some generous donors who contributed to CTL as a part of our IndieGoGo campaign, so we want to recognize them here.

Check out what the press has been saying about CTL.

We are an independent subsidiary of DoSomething.org. (This means we have separate funding, staff, incorporation, etc. but we’re under the fiscal sponsorship of DoSomething.org. Think of us as really friendly half siblings.)

We’re doing some really great work with MIT Media Lab, as well.
