As of October 1, 2021

The charts below and at https://bit.ly/3on6MjG are a compilation of 15 issues that the Crisis Text Line (CTL) 741741 track, by state, for the general public.

The data on these charts are for Oregon and gathered from Crisistrends.org, the data arm of CTL. The same raw data are available for each state.

Demographic data for Oregon Texters - 2020
Crisis Text Line Actions by State - 2020
Crisis Text Line Data Philosophy

States are ranked by crisis related to each of the 15 crisis, across time, by day of week, by time of day, and by 2-hour periods during the day.

The first chart shows how Oregonians rank nationally on the their usage of CTL by issue and the time of day texters are in crisis around each issue. i.e., Suicide, Oregon ranks 4th in the nation, and 46% of Oregon texters whose main issue is suicide text between 10pm-4am. Note: 72% of texters to CTL are youth. They can't sleep.

The second chart shows co-occurring issues texters discuss in the same conversation for each of the individual 15 crisis. Red is the largest, green 2nd largest, blue third largest and yellow 4th largest co-occurring issue. i.e. for suicide the main co-occurring topic was depression/sadness at 44.4%, second was about relationships at 25.3% third was anxiety/stress at 25.0%, fourth was isolation/loneliness at 20.7% and fifth was self-harm at 15.3%. The remaining 9 issues drew sporadic impact to cause texters to contact the CTL. This can inform dispatch, crisis counselors, ER personnel, therapists, other health care workers, government, etc.

The third chart shows the trend by month for 2021 of the importance of each issue to those in crisis. In January, Anxiety/Stress replaced Depression/Sadness in the top spot for the first time in five months with Relationships in 3rd and Suicide in 4th. In February, those positions remained firm. In March, Depression/Sadness and Anxiety/Stress switched places again. In April, Anxiety took the first spot, switching again with Depression/Sadness, Suicide took 3rd switching with Relationships which ended up 4th. In May, Anxiety/Stress stays 1st, Depression/Sadness in 2nd and Relationships returned to 3rd with Suicide 4th. Those positions held fast through June. In July, Relationships took 1st for the first time since August, 2020 with Depression/Sadness staying in 2nd, Anxiety/Stress 3rd and Suicide 4th. In August, Anxiety made a 5 point jump to take number 1, again, with Relationships and Depressoin holding their percentages and Suicide dropping 2 points. September. Anxiety leads, Depression becomes 2nd leaving Relationship 3rd followed by Suicide in 4th

The fourth chart replicates the third chart with data from 2020. Depression lead every month in 2019 dropping to second starting in March of 2020 when Anxiety/stress took over first for four months (the remainder of the school year). In July the primary issue returned as Depression which pretty much finished out the year as the leading issue. Relationships was a pretty consistent third while Suicide was more prevalent in 2019 while moving to a steady 4th place issue in 2020. Isolation/loneliness remained as a steady fifth issue and Self-harm was 6th in both 2019 and 2020. No other issues garnered double digits either year.
