If you text 741741 when you are feeling depressed or suicidal, a crisis worker will text you back immediately and continue to text with you? Many people, especially younger ones, do not like talking on the phone and would be more comfortable texting. It's a free service to anyone - teens, adults, etc. - who live in the U.S. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to.
If you would rather call: 1-800-273-8255
No shame, talk to someone!
