For many teenagers, technology and data have been the main means of communication for the longest time possible. For this reason, this serves as the main platform used to address most of their concerns and hence led to the research done by Nancy Lublin on the use of technology and data to save lives. The frequency of the use of technology was essential data needed for this study. Knowing that this platform could be used for other positive services, she emphasized crisis management and how it works. The text below shows the different ways in which the crisis text line helps in the management of teenage concerns.
Messages are the most frequently used means of communication and should therefore be considered. Most teenagers go through tough times that they don’t tell about and hence the need to use the most effective means they use to communicate. This is inclusive of family issues, stress, or suicidal thoughts. This enabled people to train as counselors to help solve the teenage problems through the crisis text line and make it most effective. Texting back and forth with advice and resources to help guide the teens through these hard moments and help in the collection of data from anonymous sources to be used in finding resources for other clients that would help them solve other emergencies.
Other than helping teens solve their problems on a personal basis, it also helps them with baseline data for the parents and even teachers. One of the importance of this platform is that a large audience can be addressed at ago. This helps gain access to teens that are not much of social media use hence making it effective for all parties. For effective monitoring, it is important that physical contact is established with the teens.
The use of this means of technology has aided in the surveillance of school counselors and their relationship with the kids and the response. The data acquired can be used to show what the teenagers are going through without actually mentioning it. This has made it effective to make communication with the teens as this is their most-used means of communication and the most comfortable. This means of communication being effective, Nancy Lublin has made efforts to help expand the use of the crisis text line to other countries to help reach a larger audience for their services and save lives among teens. This is to help reach out to many other teenagers and any other group of teenagers that may need these services.
