About Text 2 Stop It!
Text 2 Stop It! is a vital 501(c)(3) operating in Maryland and Washington, D.C. with the driving mission to provide an anonymous support tool for youth who experience or witness bullying, peer pressure, substance use, mental health crisis, and physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Our text platform allows dedicated volunteers to provide confidential support and potentially life-saving information as needed. Our goal is to expand the success of the Text 2 Stop It! to a national level so that we can help more kids.
NEED FOR OUR PROGRAM
In 2019 a study conducted by the National Center for Educational Statistics; it was found that one in every five students experiences the trauma of being bullied. Bullying along with other “violence, abuse, neglect or witnessing violence in the home or community,” is defined by the CDC as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). The toxic stress that occurs when experiencing an ACE can alter the development of the brain and affect stress responses in the body. In 2019 the CDC also reported that “students who experience bullying are at increased risk for depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, lower academic achievement, and dropping out of school”. These statistics drive our mission and our motivation to expand our efforts nationally so that our program can reach more children in need.
Text 2 Stop It! was initially piloted in a Maryland school system as a means for students to report incidents of bullying anonymously and comfortably. Text 2 Stop It! sent the collected information to the school authorities who immediately intervened. Within the first 60 days of implementation, Text2StopIt! responded to over 45 tips referencing bullying, planned violence, weapons in schools, drug use, drug distribution, cyber-bullying, and planned suicide attempts. We were also instrumental in the passing of House Bill 669, which recommended that all schools in the state of Maryland develop text hotlines like Text2StopIt! for their students. From 2013 to 2017, we saw a 71% decrease in official reported bullying incidents, prevented 8 youth suicide attempts, and increased intervention related to drug distribution and weapons present in school settings. It is our mission to take this framework and expand upon it by not only partnering with school districts but by connecting with nonprofits that serve youth and offering our text hotline, free of charge.
