Lean on Me, a texting service that provides non-crisis support to students

Lean on Me, a texting service that provides non-crisis support to students, from students, is a Massachusetts Institute of Technology brainchild that is slowly but surely finding its place at Northeastern. 

By texting the hotline, students are matched with other students who are given the tools and resources to listen emphatically, respond thoughtfully and help however they can within the limits of a non-licensed support system.

While a Northeastern chapter of Lean on Me briefly existed a few years ago, the club soon dissipated. However, students this semester are dedicated to reengaging the Northeastern community with this texting hotline and are currently in the process of becoming an official Northeastern student organization.
