WSSSC: for your consideration as you implement the requirement to add crisis hotline information to student and faculty ID cards, Forefront at UW makes the recommendation below. At the bottom of Marny’s email is a link to an article about the use of the Crisis Text Line at California community colleges.

The Crisis Text Line could be listed in addition to a local or national hotline phone number, if you think it is important to have a phone option.

Joe –

I don’t recall how much I may have emailed already about the advantages of using the Crisis Text Line as the crisis resource for student ID cards.

Simply put:
-Anonymous use
-Always accessible
-We could connect with Crisis Text Line about obtaining a password that would allow us access to the data from higher ed student calls. Washington state already has its own password (text ‘Heal’ to 741741) – but it would be great to have a student-specific password.

Here’s an article about California’s use of Crisis Text Line that might be helpful:
