StarVista Teen Crisis Services Expanding

🎉 As of March 27th, 2023, Teen Crisis Services, StarVista’s text line and online chat for youth and young adults 13+, will be available Monday to Friday, 4pm – 10pm PST. 

📱 Teen Crisis Services can be accessed by texting (650)747–6463 or visiting their website during hours of operation.

Many of you have firsthand knowledge of challenges that adolescents may face in their academic and personal lives. We know that peer-based support can be a powerful tool in helping students feel heard, understood, and empowered.

Adolescents can chat confidentially with trained peer counselors under Crisis Center staff supervision. While mainly focused on crisis intervention and suicide prevention, teens can also talk about school stress, relationship issues, and mental health challenges. Services are free, safe, and confidential.  

You can print and display the attached flyer in your office, window, or on your walls to help youth in San Mateo County know this service is available.

Thank you for your commitment to supporting the well-being of adolescents!
