“I am glad I made this call. The counselor gave me information about 3 different agencies that could help me.  I didn’t know these agencies existed!  I called them and got the help I needed”

– Lucy

“I have been sad for a long time.  The mom of a friend of mine told me she was worried about me and gave me this flyer for the Teen Crisis Textline.  I texted them the next day.  The counselor understood how I was feeling and supported me.  I have been able to reach them by text now at other times when I am feeling very sad.”

– 13 year old girl
