America is hurting, we’re listening -Crisis Text Line

To access Crisis Text Line, Text HOME to 741741

Before we get into the COVID data, I want to share part of a message Nancy sent our CCs (Crisis Counselors) Monday night:

America is hurting. Grappling with centuries of racial injustice. Black Americans are feeling tired, angry, full of grief, and at risk. This week we’ve seen that pain reach a tipping point in our communities and in our texter conversations. Mentions of “Black”, “racism”, and “protests” have increased 10% in our conversations in the last 2 days.

Crisis Text Line is here to listen.

Thank you for the important role you play in ensuring everyone knows we are here to listen.

You can read the rest of Nancy’s statement and action items here and see our statement to texters here.

This week we’re sharing informative dashboards that break down America’s pain state-by-state.

Each link below will take you to a dashboard where you’ll find how each of the three waves—anxiety related to the virus, crises related to quarantines, and crises related to financial issues and bereavement—showed up in each state. This includes demographics of who texted in and other issues they texted us about.

You’ll also find data about how each state stood up and helped texters since mid-March.

This data is meant to be shared! Forward it to colleagues and leaders who should see it. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Our hope is to convert these emails into a revised version of CrisisTrends.org soon—as part of a move to launch a mental health trends think-tank that would foster research, trend-spotting, and convene thought leaders.
