As stated on CTL's website:
Millions of young people are quietly suffering every day, and many feel like they have no one to turn to and nowhere to go.
Crisis Text Line provides crisis support, 24/7, to young people (13-25) through a medium they already know and trust: text.
- Text messages offer a discreet, familiar, and accessible form of communication for teens.
- Live, trained specialists with extensive training in crisis intervention provide emotional support to young people in crisis as well as safety planning and referrals.
This extensive guide provides families information on the nature of self-harm, why teens do it, and what you can do to help.

Safe2Tell provides young people a way to report any threatening behaviors or activities endangering themselves or someone they know in a way that keeps them safe and anonymous.
To make a report, call 1-877-542-SAFE (7233) from anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The call is free. You can also make a web tip at safe2tell.org. Remember your identity is safe. No one will ask for your name and number. Telling is not "snitching." Telling is when you need to keep yourself or someone you know safe from threats, harmful behaviors, or dangerous situations.
