What Happens When I Call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline? 
A skilled, trained crisis worker who works at the Lifeline Crisis Center closest to you will answer the phone. This person will listen to you, understand how your problem is affecting you, provide support, and share any resources that may be helpful. Remember, your call is confidential and free. 

How Do I Use the Crisis Text Line? 
Text HELLO to 741-741 from anywhere in the United States, 24/7. Trained volunteers will text about whatever is a crisis to you—addiction, anxiety, assault, bullying, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, or suicide. Conversations usually end when both you and the crisis counselor feel that you’re in a safe place.
