Crisis Text Line
Currently 7 EARS alums are volunteers for this national crisis providing support at your fingertips, 24/7.
Text START to 741-741 to speak with an online counselor about any kind of crisis. A live, trained counselor receives your text and responds quickly.
Crisis Text Line complements EARS by offering late-night support and an easy way to reach out when you're home for the holidays: the line is open 24/7 and 365 days a year. As a crisis counselor, I use many of the skills I learned in EARS training and have found that some people feel more comfortable sharing through text first, before voicing aloud. Text START to 741-741.

It can be hard at Cornell to have conversations even with close friends — we're all so busy. EARS taught me that we don't have to pretend to be okay at all times.
