Live Chat and Text is a safe, confidential, one-on-one conversation with a highly-trained empathic responder.  Chat and Text services are for everyone, regardless of your age, issues or concerns. If you're not comfortable using the phone, or would prefer to communicate with someone online or by text about your feelings, concerns or problems, please access our ONTX service. 

The ONTX service allows you to take your time to process what you want to say, work through how you are feeling, and communicate with privacy in a way that is comfortable for you or where others cannot overhear you. 

Get started! Chat click below.

ONTX is available between 2pm to 2am daily.
