Mindspace Crisis Messenger

KRT’s Mindspace textline provides free emotional crisis support and confidential information on a wide range of issues for 16 to 29 year olds 

Accessing the right support is important, especially if you need someone to talk to immediately. Mindspace will connect every young person to a trained volunteer to provide crisis help. Our Volunteer’s will listen and help you think more clearly, enabling you to know that you can take the next step to feeling better.

Mindspace is free and confidential 

KRT’s trained volunteers will introduce themselves, reflect on what you’ve said, and invite you to share how you’re feeling. You’ll text each other, only sharing what you feel comfortable with. By asking questions, listening to you and responding with support, they will help you think through your feelings until you both feel you are now in a calm, safe place. You might be signposted to other services, so that you can continue to get support.

Our Crisis Messenger service can help with urgent issues such as:

·       suicidal thoughts

·       abuse or assault

·       self-harm

·       bullying

·       relationship issues

You can text us free and anonymously – although if the volunteer believes you are at immediate risk of harm, they may share your details with people who can provide support.
