Feeling Stressed? Text TESS

Life can be stressful- not just for adults but for teens, too.

NWF Health Network has partnered with X2AI to bring a digital mental health program to support middle and high school students district wide. This program is called Tess. “Tess is a mental health chatbot powered by AI. Through text message conversations, Tess supports students by listening to their concerns and delivers psychoeducational content and mental health coping techniques. Chatting with Tess is stigma-free and she provides unbiased emotional support on-demand.” Tess is trained to detect crises and intervene at critical moments.

TESS is available 24/7 through SMS text messaging at 850-801-6119. Your middle or high school child can text “hi” and begin chatting with Tess anytime.
