How to use Crisis Text Line
Text DISCORD to 741741.
Crisis doesn’t just mean thinking about ending your own life. It’s any painful emotion and anytime you need support.
We also surface Crisis Text Line within the Discord mobile app:
- Report a message within the Discord mobile app from iOS or Android by tapping & holding on the message you want to report, then by selecting ‘Report’ in the dropdown menu.
- Select your issue from the drop-down menu.
- If you are reporting for self-harm*, you will be presented with the below screen providing information about how to reach Crisis Text Line.
From here, you can send resources to a friend to assist them in getting the help they need.
Alternatively, you can text Crisis Text Line directly to get the help you need for yourself, including advice and support for helping a friend through a crisis.
