How it Works

Free support at your fingertips, 24/7Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via the medium people already use and trust: text.

Here’s how it works:

1.    Text “VT” to 741741 from anywhere in the USA, anytime, about any type of crisis.
2.    A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds quickly.
3.    The volunteer Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment.
