TXT 4 HELP is a 24-hour text-for-support service offered by National Safe Place to help teens access immediate help and safety. The service is available nationwide.
How it works:
- Teens can text the word “safe” and their current location (address/city/state) to 69866.
- Within seconds, users will receive a message with the the closest Safe Place location and contact number for the local youth shelter.
- Teens will then have the option to reply with “2chat” to text interactively with a mental health professional for more help.
