Inside the Research
Crisis lines are one of the oldest suicide prevention approaches in the U.S. and are viewed as a national “safety net” during a mental health crisis. Teen-to-teen (t2t) crisis lines are a special type of crisis service where youth volunteers help their peers. This project is the first to examine the impact of t2t crisis line work for youth volunteers in collaboration with two of the largest t2t lines in the U.S.: Teen Line and Youth Line.
