"Anxiety," "grief," "mom": these are the words that are coming up at this extreme moment in time. That data comes from Crisis Text Line’s Nancy Lublin, whose online counselors are using both empathy and aggregated data to help people through this pandemic. Crisis Text Line provides free, confidential crisis counseling via text, 24/7. To help counselors meet the moment, they anonymize and analyze real-time data on how their users are feeling – and that data is telling them the story of right now. Hosted by editor-at-large Bob Safian.
