This free service for our students provides a 24/7 confidential text line for students facing a crisis. Studetns can simply text "ISU" to 741741 and a live, trained crisis counselor will receive the text and respond within minutes to help the student navigate through their situation via text message. The trained crisis counselor will collaboratively problem-solve to help the texter come up with a plan to stay safe. Crisis Text Line is not a replacement for long-term counseling, in-person therapy, or a friend. The counselor will encourage the texter to reach out locally for support once the situation has moved out of crisis mode.
