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.
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.
CRITERIA FOR 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…
Entities or services that discriminate based on age, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.
Independent private practitioners, including but not limited to: therapists, counselors, doctors, lawyers.
Privately run and/or owned blogs or businesses.
Entities or services that contain advertisements, are not free, or contain hidden services or subscription fees.
