The text hit the emergency line around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon.

A young man was the sender, saying he was going to hurt himself.

The message launched a massive search; Monroe County Sheriff Deputies on foot and on ATV's, along with the K9 unit and a NYSP helicopter.

They didn't know his exact location, they only knew he was in Northampton Park in the Town of Sweden.

For hours they searched.

"At approximately 7:45 p.m. the male was found deceased in a remote and trail-less portion of the park, amidst heavy brush and timber," said Sgt. Kevin Schoepfel with MCSO Special Operations and the USMS Fugitive Task Force.

He goes on to explain, "The preliminary investigation indicates that this was an act of self-harm and foul play does not appear to be involved."

The young man's name is not being released.

Over the last five years, more than 78 million messages have been exchanged with the national Crisis Text Line.

It provides free, 24/7 support in the US. All you have to do is text 'HOME' to 741741.

"Every texter is connected with a Crisis Counselor, a real-life human being trained to bring texters from a hot moment to a cool calm through active listening and collaborative problem solving. All of Crisis Text Line's Crisis Counselors are volunteers, donating their time to helping people in crisis," states the website.

"Moving from a text into a conversation on the phone or in person is where you build that connection with people. The real focus here is on helping people build relationships, connections so they don't feel as isolated," explained Chacku Mathai, the CEO of the Mental Health Association of Rochester.

In addition to the text-line, there is a 'Warm Line Service' in Monroe County. The number is 585-563-7470.

It is a peer-support system put on by Affinity Place.

"People like myself, who have history of mental health issues, addiction issues, we can understand what someone is going through, it is more relatable," said Mathai.

Affinity Place also provides a short-term home for people to stay in who need a few days of support with a Peer Support Specialist.

It is a free service. You can email them at

There is also the Rochester Community Mobile Crisis Team, which can be reached by calling 211 in the City or 585-275-5151.

It serves children, teens, adults, and seniors.

A typical visit consists of a crisis team visiting you in your home, school, or other location. The costs are covered by most insurance policies.

In addition, Monroe County is putting together a community-based coalition. It will be called Partners for Suicide Prevention Coalition and will be a place for you to find resources.

The website is slated to launch this fall.
