Crisis Text Line
Crisis Text Line is the free, 24/7 text line for people in crisis in the United States. The service is powered by volunteer Crisis Counselors who work remotely anywhere with a computer and secure internet connection.
Crisis Counselors answer texts from people in crisis, bringing them from a hot moment to a cool calm through active listening, collaborative problem solving, and safety planning.
Volunteers commit to 200 total hours, serving a recommended 4 hours/wk. to meet this requirement.
Crisis Counselors must be 18 or older and have a US Social Security Number. Training is absolutely free, but know that it costs the organization $1,008 to train someone! You can help bring that cost down by seeing training through to the end and serving the 200 volunteer hours.
