Charity Partner: Crisis Text Line
Crisis Text Line is a not-for-profit organization that provides free, 24/7, high-quality
text-based mental health support and crisis intervention in English and Spanish. Since its launch in 2013, Crisis Text Line has trained over 55,000 volunteers and engaged in more than 7.5 million crisis conversations.
Supporting Crisis Text Line’s service through donations keeps the service free and helps a texter in need reach a trained volunteer Crisis Counselor. Investing in Crisis Text Line will also expand our additional programs that support research, workforce development, and higher education collaborations to address the largest systematic issues contributing to the current mental health crisis.
Individuals seeking support through Crisis Text Line can text DISCORD to 741741 or 443-SUPPORT in WhatsApp to be connected to a live, trained volunteer Crisis Counselor or text HOLA to 741741 or 442-AYUDAME in WhatsApp for Spanish.
Mental Health support continues to be a focus for us here at Discord and we chose Crisis Text Line as a partner this year as part of our core belief to ensure Discord is a safe, inclusive place where everyone can find community. We established a wonderful partnership with them earlier this year, and because they offer support in various regions in both English and Spanish, we wanted to continue supporting the important work they are doing.
You can learn more about Crisis Text Line at their website.
