Why Join Certified Listeners Society?
We are a not-for-profit organization built by a community of people dedicated to providing early-stage emotional support to anyone who needs it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We are not a crisis helpline. We believe that by serving the masses to navigate the challenges of our lives, with early-stage and real-time Emotional Support interventions, we can help individuals make better mental health lifestyle choices to live better, happier, healthier lives.
Our Mission
To provide Emotional Support to the masses, whenever they need it, one text message at a time. We do not wait for individuals to call us but rather go out of our way to find people online who need emotional support.
