Article Photos: Crisis hotlines turning to text to reach teens 4/4

In this Tuesday, March 26, 2013 photo, Elaine Leader, founder and director, poses at the Teen Line center, that takes text messages and phone calls from teens seeking help, at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. As more teens have gone mobile, using their phones as an extension of themselves, hotline providers have tried to keep up.  Some text providers operate in specific towns, counties or regions and-or rely on trained teen volunteers to handle the load across modes of communication.  (AP Photo/Reed Saxon)
