The SafeUT Crisis Text and Tip Line app provides 24/7 access to crisis counseling and school tip reporting for students and their parents and guardians that live in the state of Utah. After installing the app you can connect directly to the UNI CrisisLine or report a confidential tip on bullying, school threats of violence or concern about someone in crisis. CrisisLine staff can assist with a wide variety of problems, including emotional crisis, grief and loss, drug and alcohol problems, mental health issues, self-harm and suicidal behavior.
- Fixed an issue where the school select screen was shown twice on a first install of the app in some cases
- Preparations have been made to support submitting photos in tips and in chats in the near future

Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Your feedback is appreciated! We would love everyone to use the app, feel free to use the "parent" feature. Schools do not need to be attached in order to chat with a master's level licensed clinician. Hope this helps!
I had a problem with school and friends. I didn’t know what to do and I was lost so I downloaded this app and It works great. Expescially knowing that it is a real person I am chatting with and a certified counselor. They told me what to do and then i tried it and it worked. They give great advice and the people are very nice and friendly and ready to help. I love knowing that they are live 24 7. I definitely recommend it. It straightened and helped my life for the better. 🍉🍉🍉🍉
Needs better training, make one for non students.
I’m not a student, but back in October I was desperate to talk to someone. I was suicidal. The chat wasn’t an option as it was late at night, so I used the call feature. When the girl answered, she sounded very confused and didn’t know how to respond. When she answered she didn’t state that it was a crisis line or anything, but it had connected me to her. I hung up and deleted the app about 2 min after downloading it. Frustrating. Tried other apps and reaching out to chats online but nothing went through that night.
