50808 is a free 24/7 text service, providing everything from a calming chat to immediate support for people going through a mental health or emotional crisis – big or small.

From breakups or bullying, to anxiety, depression and suicidal feelings, Crisis Volunteers are available 24/7 for anonymous text conversations. The aim is to provide immediate support in the short term and connect people to resources that will help them in the future.


Text About It currently works on all major networks (Eir, Three, Vodafone, GoMo, Tesco Mobile, Virgin Media). However, there is a chance that Text About It may not work on some smaller networks such as An Post and 48.  If the short code does not work on your network (An Post/48), you can still use the service by texting HELLO to 0861800280. Standard network message rates may apply to this 086 number. 

Reminder: In an emergency always call 999 or 112 for immediate support.
