What is SafeUT Crisis Text & Tip Line?

The SafeUT Crisis Text and Tip Line is a statewide service that provides real-time crisis intervention to youth through texting and a confidential tip program – right from your smartphone.

Licensed clinicians in our 24/7 CrisisLine call center respond to all incoming chats, texts, and calls by providing:

  • supportive or crisis counseling,
  • suicide prevention, and
  • referral services.

We can help anyone with emotional crises, bullying, relationship problems, mental health, or suicide-related issues.

Free & Confidential Crisis Services

SafeUT is free and confidential.

If an “active rescue” is necessary – meaning our crisis counselor believes the user is in immediate danger – the counselor will alert emergency services to attempt a face-to-face safety evaluation based on the information provided by the user.
