Crisis Text Line South Africa

Crisis Text Line was designed to help people in pain with as little friction as possible. It is not an app. There is no long intake survey. There is no password or fee. We are available via SMS, Facebook Messenger, or WhatsApp – right in your pocket. 

We offer crisis counselling via digital platforms to people in crisis, where they are. We take people from (1) crisis to calm, (2) help create a plan for continued health and safety and if needed (3) an active rescue. 

HUMAN FIRST. We believe people in pain deserve human-to-human, non-judgemental empathy. We build productsand policies for greater human connection, speed and accuracy.
