Our Minds Matter (OMM) is pleased to announce our newest partner, Crisis Text Line. Crisis Text Line provides accessible and free 24/7 support for people shouldering anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, or anything in between.
How it works:
Texters send a message with the word “MIND” to 741741 from anywhere in the U.S. at any time and for any type of crisis. The texter is then connected with a compassionate, trained Crisis Counselor for confidential support.
This partnership is just in time for September, which is Suicide Prevention Month. Our partnership will enable us to better understand the unique mental health issues that teens are facing in the OMM network and thus provide programming that is most relevant for student wellness and preventing suicide.
Follow along with us this month @our.minds.matter to learn more about this partnership and how you can play a role in ending teen suicide.
