Crisis Text Line
Did you know that if you text 741741 when you are feeling really depressed or suicidal, a crisis counselor will text with you? Many people do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It's a free service run by The Crisis Text Line! You are not alone. Within four months of its inception, the Text Line had been contacted by people from every area code in the country. It is not weak to ask for help. Everybody needs it from time to time. Don't ever be afraid or embarrassed to reach out to someone.
