Who is the text service for?
Anyone of any age in suicide crisis, living in Nottingham City or County. You do not have to be current clients of the Tomorrow Project, or its associated services.
Purpose of the text service:
The purpose of the primary care, text message support service is to offer support to individuals of all ages in suicide crisis. The support will consist of emotional and practical support, signposting, and referrals if necessary.
How can the text conversation be started?
Conversations can be started by texting a keyword to 0780 000 2606. For adults, the keyword is ‘HOPE’, and for under 18’s the keyword is ‘LISTEN’.
