Crisis 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.
