You won’t pay a thing.
And you don’t need to worry about insurance. Standard text rates do apply, though, if you don’t have an unlimited plan.
We’re not looking to get your parents involved. We’re here for you, so you can share what you’re going through when it feels like no one else will listen.
No two stories are the same, because no two people are the same. All of our counselors are trained to help texters deal with their unique situations.
