In 2020, Teen Lifeline added 60 hours of text services/month to support students isolated at home. Teens were less willing - or able - to speak freely by phone and needed another way to get help. Astoundingly, texts for help to Teen Lifeline increased by nearly ten-fold during 2020. The cost to fund one texting conversation is $100. We will continue our expanded texting hours while there is a need as a result of school from home. The pandemic has changed many things, for AZ teens including feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression. Your support today can provide the much-needed resources to fund this additional text support for AZ teens.
