The Milwaukee Latino Health Coalition is addressing the need for emotional support and suicide prevention with teens and adults through a program that is a SMS text message-based service. The resource is called TEXTO ESPERANZA and it is the Spanish- Emotional Support Text Line for the State of Wisconsin.  The HOPELINE is a “text” in for help and hope service. The person in need is answered via any type of device that has internet access, computer, laptop, IPAD or tablet.  The person is able to text in their need and receives support, confidentially, all via text mode. The Spanish Hopeline is HIPPA compliant and is a state-wide service.   Hours of operation:  2-shifts Monday-Thursday (Noon-4pm  and 6pm-10pm).
