The Crisis Text Line is a global non-profit organization that provides free mental health texting service available to anyone in crisis. With the completion of a 30- hour intensive training course through the organization and with the support of a Supervisor, I received my certification as a Counselor. I began working and aiding clients seeking support for a range of crises, including anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I have completed over 100 hours and have dedicated 200 hours total of my time to continue to work for the text line.
