Lean On Me Text Line for students • UCSB
Supporters are volunteers who share your experiences and are excited to converse with you. They are your peers, as determined by the context of the hotline (UCSB hotline's supporters are all UCSB students.) While they are not formally licensed or certified, they do go through Supporter Training. We are not a suicide hotline, nor are we trained to deal with crisis-level situations. We’re just kind peers willing to listen and talk.
