What is the Crisis Text Line?

Your best friend. Your Dad. That lady down the street. That quiet kid in school. That loud kid in school. That dude in accounting. Your cousin in Craftsbury. That hipster in the flannel in Brattleboro. Your Grandmother. Crisis Text Line is for everyone.

Crisis Text Line is free, 24/7 support for those in crisis. Text “VT” to 741741 from anywhere in the USA to text with a trained Crisis Counselor.

This service is provided through the Vermont Department of Mental Health in partnership with the National Crisis Text Line Service.  Crisis Text Line trains volunteers to support people in crisis. With almost 30 million messages processed to date, we’re growing quickly, but so is the need.
