Texting That Saves Lives
When Nancy Lublin started texting teenagers to help with her social advocacy organization, what she found was shocking — they started texting back about their own problems, from bullying to depression to abuse. So she's setting up a text-only crisis line, and the results might be even more important than she expected.
Her inspirational journey is among many that can be found on TED Talk.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages
Everything TED supports from its TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Edlesson series — are driven by its goal to spread great ideas. We love TED and hope you will too.
