Additionally, the Newell Brands Charitable Foundation renewed our partnership with Crisis Text Line. Crisis Text Line is a global nonprofit that provides free access to critical, on-demand support for those suffering with stress, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying, relationship strife, depression, suicide and/or self-harm.
The organization uses a network of volunteer counselors who are available by text 24/7 and thoroughly trained on supporting people experiencing crises related to mental health. Crisis Text Line is focused on using empathy and innovation to reach people wherever they are in order to eliminate feelings of isolation and loneliness. Their services are available in English and Spanish in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Ireland, with plans to expand to other countries in the future.
