Crisis Text Line - Fast Forward

Help someone in crisis through text message

Crisis Counselor

Crisis Text Line is a free, 24/7 support line for people in crisis. Crisis Counselors use active listening, problem solving, and safety planning to guide texters from a hot moment to a cool calm. Texters are in crisis more often at night. If you’re a night owl or early riser, this opportunity is for you!

Note: Requires Training

The great conversations leave you warm and fuzzy – those are good for the soul. The hard conversations require patience and fortitude – those are good for the spirit. – Crisis Counselor, Consultant
