Copped this from a fellow Chaplain:

Did you know that if you text “Home” to 741741 when you are feeling depressed, sad, or going through any kind of emotional crisis, a crisis worker will text you back immediately and continue to text with you? Sometimes it’s best to just talk it out with someone who has no personal bias. Many people, especially younger ones, prefer text to talking on the phone. It’s a free service to anyone; teens, adults, etc. who live in the US. Depression is real, you’re not alone. 💚

Hope this is useful to you!
