In crisis? Text STEVE to 741741.
The Steve Fund has created a special keyword, STEVE, that young people of color can text to 741741 to connect with a trained crisis counselor 24/7. The Fund views text messaging as a key component of its strategy towards addressing the unmet mental health needs of college and university students of color. Through its partnership with the Crisis Text Line, the Fund promotes text messaging as a means to improve the critically needed access for young people of color to crisis counseling.
