Life is difficult. We all struggle and sometimes it’s just too much for us to handle on our own. In these times, we need to reach out to others and get help. The Crisis Text Line is a line that you can text to speak to a crisis counselor.
Talking on the phone can be stressful so calling is not always a good option. Texting is a lot easier for many people to deal with. This line connects texters to people who can help them get to a better place to make it out of the moment.
This is not a replacement for sustained mental health care. This is meant to help in times of crisis only. Although the main link goes to the US, there are a few international options as well, including the UK. Help is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Save the number in your phone so you have it for yourself or someone else in a time of need.
