A Decade Of Impact

Ten years ago, we began responding to silent cries for help from people on their smartphones.

The young student being bullied in the lunchroom.

The anxious college student, uncertain of their future and not sure if they can go on.

The overwhelmed and overworked nurse in the middle of their night shift.

Without speaking a word, they asked for support and were guided to a cooler, safer calm.

When Crisis Text Line first launched, few expected we could provide substantive help through text messages. Today, nearly 9 million text conversations later, we proved it’s not only possible, but highly effective. Anyone anywhere can get fast, free, and discreet support from our community of thousands of trained volunteer counselors.
