Your life matters and is worth saving

Reaching out can be scary but taking that step – by text, or phone - can help you feel less alone when you need it the most.

For some people in distress, reaching out and talking on the phone can be intimidating, especially for anyone who uses text as their usual form of communication.

Many people find it easier to express emotion by typing instead of talking out loud.

The responders who answer your texts are there to support you in the struggles you are facing.

They can help you explore ways to create safety when things are feeling out of control.
