Text-a-Tip, created by Linking Efforts Against Drugs (LEAD), is an anonymous texting system for youth in need of mental health assistance. Students can text the given number and within minutes they will receive and answer from a team of licensed mental health counselors who will provide emotional support, follow ups, and referrals to community partners. This program gives youth an outlet to get help in a manner in which they’re comfortable.
