About THRIVE Lifeline


Virtual Office, Atlanta, GA 30096, US

Mission Statement

THRIVE Lifeline’s mission is to end stigma for people with marginalized identities and close gaps in access to crisis intervention, validation, and resources through whole-human support. We fulfill our mission by: (1) Providing texters with a 24/7/365 free, text-based hotline support by trained, non-judgmental Crisis Responders who share underrepresented identities and backgrounds. (2) Reducing suicide risk through literature-based deescalation practices and by connecting texters with life-saving and life-affirming resources. (3) Using anonymized data to train leaders and advocate for representation in more welcoming and inclusive educational and professional spaces.


THRIVE Lifeline is a 501(c)(3) grassroots organization dedicated to changing the landscape of mental health support for people with intersecting marginalized identities. Among our services, we offer a free text-based crisis line. We are led by experienced crisis managers who are fed up with watching our communities fall prey to systemic marginalization only to face dismissive, unsupportive, and sometimes dangerous interactions through traditional mental health avenues. Since opening in June 2020 we have served texters in all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico.

THRIVE Lifeline is Trans-led and operated. We are a volunteer run and operated group of certified suicide interventionists whose identities are marginalized, and who are students, career professionals, and retirees largely trained across the breadth of STEMM fields. Our current volunteer demographics include: LGBTQ2S+ (80%), Persons of Color (63%), people living with a disability, neurodiversity, or mental health needs (54%), Trans / Nonbinary (40%), and/or Immigrants (18%). When you volunteer with us, you will be provided opportunities for mentorship, skill development, and leadership growth. Whatever your passions or experience level, we have a place for you!

We invite you to join and grow with us as we provide life-saving and life-affirming support.
