We’re free, nationwide (in the US), 24/7, and available by text. When you’re ready to talk, we’re ready to listen.
Anyone can text “HOME” to 741741 from anywhere in the USA, anytime, about any type of crisis. A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds quickly. The volunteer Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment. Our service is completely free, but messaging rates apply if you’re NOT on Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, or T-Mobile.

Suicidal Thoughts, Self-harm, Depression, Stress/Anxiety, Grief, Eating Disorders, Physical Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Isolation/Loneliness, Relationship Issues, or Bullying.
