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.

About TED

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.
