2. From Listener Jordan:
"There is a Volunteer program called crisis text line. I was a volunteer crisis counselor and went through rigorous training in order to help those who were contemplating suicide or needed someone to talk to. The cool thing about this program is that it is free, it's anonymous, and also text only. Some people don't feel comfortable calling in talking to someone on the phone especially in that situation, so this is available to anyone for free at any time they need it, 24/7/365.
The crisis text line phone number to text into is 741741. Again, it is completely free and anonymous. As counselors, we have hundreds of great resources for even local help is needed, lots of online resources for different issues, and can help talk you down from a ledge if needed."
Today marks the beginning of #SuicidePreventionWeek. To all those are struggling, we’re here for you. For those who have survived, we’re proud of you. For those who have lost someone, we’re here to support you. pic.twitter.com/yEf16VY6HK— Crisis Text Line (@CrisisTextLine) September 9, 2018
