Crisis Lines

A crisis line is a service that provides free, confidential support and resources for people in emotional distress. The service is provided by a trained crisis counselor on the phone and in some cases by text and/or chat. You can call or text for help with someone you’re worried about or for yourself. In addition to the resources listed below, some states have their own crisis lines with phone, text, and/or chat services.
