Using your cell phone, enter the number 839863 as the recipient in your text message.
In the text box, type the word HAND. Press send.
A trained crisis worker will be with you shortly.
When connected with the crisis worker, they will ask you if you are having thoughts of suicide. Please answer truthfully, they're here to help!
The crisis worker will work with you to provide you with what you need (community resources, referrals, emotional support, etc.)
You and the crisis worker will work together to create an action plan on how you want to proceed at the conclusion of your conversation.
The crisis worker may see if you want someone to follow-up and check on how you are doing in the future. You can also ask to schedule one if you feel you need it!
At the conclusion of your conversation, send STOP to disconnect.
