Crisis text line, or CTL, is the first national 24/7 intervention hotline exclusively by text messaging. It offers anonymity, and it’s as easy as 741-741.
The Crisis Text Hotline is helping teens deal with serious issues like depression, suicidal thoughts, and self-harm. 40,000 text messages, the majority from teenagers, are exchanged each day with crisis counselors around the country. That’s more than 11 million messages since CTL started in 2013.
