Crisis Text Line


Our list of approved referrals that Crisis Counselors provide texters.



Our goal is to help texters move from hot moments to a cool calm. Sometimes, that means we give our texters a resource –like a breathing GIF to help them calm down or a link to help them find a rape kit.

It is super important to us to refer our texters to amazing referrals. So, we’ve put a lot of time and energy and love into thinking about how to do this.

We decided to share the referral list here, because maybe you’ll find it useful or maybe you have a suggestion for something we ought to consider adding to the list.



Being on our referral list is not an endorsement. Crisis Text Line is not responsible for the content of or service provided by any of these referrals.


We value quality — so, we defined it. (Hard to appreciate what you can’t measure, right?) We assembled a committee of Crisis Counselors who defined specific criteria for referrals and then verified their compliance.

Crisis Text Line does not refer to…

  1. Entities or services that discriminate based on age, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.

  2. Independent private practitioners, including but not limited to: therapists, counselors, doctors, lawyers.

  3. Privately run and/or owned blogs or businesses.

  4. Entities or services that contain advertisements, are not free, or contain hidden services or subscription fees.

If you would like to suggest a referral, please (a) make sure it isn’t already on the referral list, (b) confirm it meets the criteria above, and (c) fill out this form.
