Crisis Hotlines Text

At SEA WAVES, we understand that seeking help is a courageous step, and we're here to support you every step of the way. That's why we're proud of our groundbreaking partnership with Crisis Text Line, a vital resource available to you

worldwide, 24/7, free and 100% confidential.


Since its inception, SEA WAVES has been dedicated to the mission of addressing eating disorders within the military community comprehensively and compassionately. This dream took a giant leap towards reality through our collaboration with Crisis Text Line.


Despite its name, Crisis Text Line is not just for moments of extreme crisis –

it's for anyone who needs a listening ear, a guiding hand, or a safe space to talk.


No issue is too small, and no problem is insignificant.


If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, Crisis Text Line can provide support. Their counselors are trained to address these challenges, offering you guidance, empathy, and a path towards recovery.


Crisis Text Line specializes in helping you transition from a hot moment of distress to a cool, calm state of well-being. Through active listening and empathetic conversations, they provide you with invaluable support and suggest appropriate referrals when needed, including resources specifically tailored to eating disorders.


It's important to note that your privacy is a top priority. Any records of communication can be permanently scrubbed upon request, ensuring that your journey towards wellness remains entirely confidential.


We want to emphasize that reaching out has absolutely zero impact on your career or the vital work you do in the military. It's a brave step towards taking care of yourself, and we're here to encourage and support you every step of the way.


So please, don't hesitate to use Crisis Text Line whenever you need someone to talk to. We're here for you, worldwide, around the clock, because your well-being matters!
