Zander's Journey to Safety

Zander considered taking his life. He lost his mother and feels alone. He didn’t know how to deal with his grief and was uncomfortable confiding in his father who was also struggling. Zander learned about Safe Place’s TXT 4 HELP service from a friend. He texted “Safe” to 4HELP (44357) and followed the prompts. Zander was connected, via text, with a professional counselor who was able to develop a safety plan and connect him with local resources. He now meets regularly with a counselor and is not only developing healthy coping skills to deal with his grief, but he is also building a stronger relationship with his father.

Give, so kids like Zander have someone to talk to.
