About Crisis Text Line

Crisis Text Line is here to help you, whatever you're going through. We provide 24/7, free and confidential support and information by text message (text HOME to 741-741), online chat and WhatsApp (+1-443-787-7678). We are available to talk with you about any kind of experience relating to mental health, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, stress, and thoughts of suicide. Our support is free. We are dedicated to preventing suicide. If you are contemplating suicide or want to kill yourself, we will listen without judgment and support you. When you contact us you will talk with one of our trained volunteers who are experienced in how to help people in your situation. They will listen to you, unpack your story and feelings, and work with you to help you through your challenges. Anyone can contact us, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity or religious beliefs. We are ready to support you 24/7, whether it's the middle of the day or the middle of the night.
