Please reblog, this is so important.
I needed this
Is this foreal?
Yes it’s a real service. I do volunteer work for a rape crisis support service in my city and texting is one of the features we provide as well. But just to boost its credibility, I tried it myself:

I actually volunteer for the Crisis Text Line and I can tell you they are all wonderful people that have extensive training and honestly just want to help. Don’t hesitate to text them, even if it’s something that seems minor, if it’s big to you they will take it seriously. I have loved my last year with them and look forward to many more years. Seriously, some of the best listeners with the biggest heats I’ve ever met. Truly amazing people. Just text LISTEN to 741741.
Something I just realized I should add. The Crisis Text Line is currently working on expanding internationally but haven’t worked out the kinks quite yet. They are also working on integrating Facebook messenger and kik. If you are international there is a very similar program that I also volunteer with call I'MALIVE that is international. All you have to do is go to their website https://www.imalive.org and click on the chat now button and you’ll be connected to a real life person who will be there for you and help you work through your situation and help you find healthy coping mechanism. They are very similar and extremely well trained. Seriously amazing people. People in America can use them as well. Basically anyone. I just didn’t want to leave my international friends without a text based resource. Both the Crisis Text Line and I'MALIVE councilors are trained to handle a wide variety of situations. They are always there to help, 24/7/365 no matter what.
