24-Hour Crisis Line: 866-4CRISIS (1-866-427-4747) or 206-461-3222
24-Hour Crisis Line provides immediate help to individuals, families and friends of people in emotional crisis. They can help you determine if you or your loved one needs professional consultation and they can link you to the appropriate services. Help is just a phone call away. Call now!
They also provide immediate language interpretation in more than 155 languages.
To provide you with the best possible assistance, they need to speak with you directly on the phone. By talking with you anonymously and confidentially, they are best able to find out the specifics of your situation and work with you to find effective answers.
TEEN LINK HELP LINE: 1-866-TEENLINK (833-6546)
Teen Link is a confidential, anonymous and non-judgmental telephone help line answered by teens each evening from 6 p.m. -10 p.m. Teen volunteers are trained to listen to your concerns and to talk with you about whatever is on your mind. No issue is too big or too small. Phone workers also have access to an extensive database and can give you information on agencies serving youth in the King County area.
King County Safe Place
Safe Place is a program that quickly connects runaway and homeless youth ages 12-17 to services, either by reuniting them with their family or providing them with emergency shelter.
- Safe Place maintains a 24/7 hotline, 1-800-422-TEEN (1-800-422-8336), where youth can directly connect with Safe Place.
- Youth can text the word SAFE and their location to 4HELP (44357) to find the closest Safe Place site.
TEEN LINK CHAT: WWW.866TEENLINK.ORG
Much like the line, teens can use Teen Link Chat to seek support for our teen volunteers on a variety of issues, including bullying, drug and alcohol concerns, relationships, stress, and other teen issues. Teen Link accepts chats from 6-9:30PM every day of the week. Teen Link Chat does not work well on cell phones, so they ask that you log on with a computer to chat with them.
