We all go through high levels of emotional stress from time to time, and when we do; it’s important to take care of ourselves and remember there are people out there ready to help and listen. Crisis Text Line is a free, international 24/7-hour mental health support service for people experiencing emotional crisis – and by crisis, we don’t just mean suicide. A crisis can be any painful emotion, whether it’s extreme depression, paralyzing anxiety, or symptoms related to OCD, PTSD, or schizophrenia.
This is a safe place to text when you feel totally out of control. A live Crisis Counselor will respond, and will guide you towards feeling more in control of your emotions – helping you move from a hot moment to a cool one, and guiding you to create a plan to stay safe and healthy. YOU are their priority!
