Here is how it works.
Step 1: Text HOME to 741741 from anywhere in the United States, anytime, about any type of crisis.
Step 2: A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds, all from our secure online platform.
Step 3: The volunteer Crisis Counselor will help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment. 


 

The good news is that nearly all mental health issues can be improved with proper treatment. When we decrease the stigma around mental health and encourage help-sseking, we can change and save lives. Mental Health Is Healthaims to initiate a public dialogue to raise awareness about the prevalence of mental health issues and connect students to the appropriate resources to get help.

SeizetheAwkward.org serves as a great new resource that features tutorial videos, information on warning signs, conversation starters, tips on how to sustain a conversation around mental health, and personal story videos from inspiring influencers like Hannah Hart, Liza Koshy, Remi Cruz and Tyler Posey.
