The Mental Health Fund
they grow to meet the increased demand of people in crisis.
Anxiety. Depression. Isolation. Domestic violence. Substance use. Eating disorders. Financial stress. Grief.
We’re all afraid for the health of ourselves and our loved ones. It’s scary. And isolating. And lonely. Sometimes it feels like too much.
Crisis Text Line has come together with Kids Help Phone, Shout, and SpunOut.ie, to create The Mental Health Fund.
This fund aims to support the work of each organization as they grow to meet the increased demand of people in crisis.
Each of these organizations provides crisis intervention via text message, 24/7. If it's a crisis to you, it's a crisis to us. No judgements. No fees. No app to download.
These organizations recruit, train, and support volunteers who comfort texters struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, domestic violence, eating disorders, or other mental health challenges. Since 2013, these 4 organizations have trained over 30,000 volunteers and exchanged over 150 million messages by text with people in crisis.
If you need support, please reach out to your local text line using the information below. If it's a crisis to you, it's a crisis to us.
