More sources for help

People who text MN to 741741 will be connected with a counselor who will help defuse the crisis and connect the texter to local resources. Crisis Text Line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

In Minnesota and across the nation, text message suicide response services have been successful in helping people in need. Texting is the preferred way to communicate for many people — especially youth — and it is important to reach people where they are at when they are contemplating suicide or in crisis.

Crisis Counselors at Crisis Text Line are dedicated, trained and supervised volunteers from around the United States. Crisis Counselors undergo a rigorous application process before undergoing a six-week, 30-hour training program. Supervisors are mental health professionals with either master’s degrees or extensive experience in the field of suicide prevention.
