Make a difference today and provide the outreach efforts and tools that could help save a life for tomorrow. Contact the TXT4Life regional coordinator in your area to schedule a presentation.
Outreach efforts by TXT4Life regional coordinators focus on suicide prevention strategies, mental health education and awareness, and helping communities understand how to access mental health and crisis resources. Presenters always encourage listeners to program 61222* (the TXT4Life short code) into their phones and to text the word “LIFE” to the number if they are in crisis.

WHAT IS TXT4Life?
TXT4Life is a suicide prevention resource available in many counties in Minnesota. The TXT4Life program uses texting as a way for those in crisis or contemplating suicide to anonymously reach out and ask for free and confidential help. When individuals text the word “LIFE” to 61222, they are connected with a trained counselor who can help them by listening, providing tools and resources, and helping them get to a safe place, both emotionally and physically.
