CRISIS TEXT LINE: Text HOME to 741741
for free, 24/7 crisis counceling
Or Email by choosing the link below that applies to you:
Is the Crisis Text Line Confidential? Yes. Crisis Counselors only know what texters share with them, and that information stays between you, unless sharing it with emergency services is absolutely necessary for your safety. We take your confidentiality seriously. Check out our Terms of Service here. In cases when a texter is in immediate danger of suicide or homicide, as determined by a risk assessment by the Crisis Counselor and Supervisor, our first step is to try to work with the texter to form a safety plan. If the texter is unable to plan for their own safety, the Supervisor may contact emergency services, who may dispatch a wellness check.
Is there a chrage:? We do not charge texters. If your cell phone plan is with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon, texts to our short code, 741741 are free of charge. If you have a plan with a different carrier, it works just like texting a friend: standard text message rates apply.
Will the hotline show on my cell phone bill? Nothing will appear on your bill if your cell phone plan is with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon. (Read about how this happened here). If your plan is with another carrier, our short code, 741741, will appear on your billing statement.
