For starters, you're not alone.

Thousands of people struggle with issues daily. Addiction, drugs, and even just being able to function daily or finding a will or motivation. It can be anything from your best friend to the guy you sit with every day. Sometimes, they're known issues, other times they are unknown issues.

Sometimes, opening up to those that mean the most to you isn't easy. With things like hotlines, it can alleviate some of those thoughts or feelings. However, sometimes, things are easier said over text.

For those who attend Michigan State University, there is a line that you can text and use to get someone to talk to, one-on-one, according to WLNS.

“As being a safer or easier way for people to reach out for help. It’s very convenient, it’s private, nobody knows you’re texting a help line and not just texting your friend. They’re reaching out and likely students who would not have reached out by telephone.” Carrie Moylan, an associate professor at Michigan State University told WLNS. 

The name of the hotline is Crisis Chat, and unfortunately, the line does have some limited hours, being 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.

A list of things you can open up about are, discussing feelings related to sexual assault or harassment. Information and advocacy, and answering questions about sexual assault or harassment, according to their website. 

There is confidentiality when it comes to texting the hotline too. However, there are a few exceptions to that, such as suspected child abuse, and or immediate threat of harm to you or yourself.
