NFHS Partners With Crisis Text Line to Support Athletes


The National Federation of State High School Associations on Tuesday announced a partnership with Crisis Text Line (CTL) to encourage mental health support for teens across the country. Crisis Text Line provides free, 24/7, text-based mental health support and crisis intervention in English and Spanish by empowering a community of trained volunteers to support people in their moments of need.

This partnership aligns with the 2021-2025 NFHS Strategic Plan and the NFHS Board of Directors Priorities, both of which have identified student mental, emotional and physical wellness as one of the most important areas of concern in high school sports and performing arts programs.

“The last several years have been particularly challenging for many students in high school activity programs, with the pandemic and other pressures felt by students today,” said NFHS CEO Karissa Niehoff. “We are glad to be able to offer another avenue of help for students nationwide through this partnership with Crisis Text Line. We need to let students know there are individuals who can help in times of need.”
