Join us in responding to the mental health crisis and in fostering compassionate, connected, suicide-safer communities.
We are able to provide help and hope to individuals, organizations, and communities since 1969 because of our donors. You have our back.
With your donation, we are able to provide:
- immediate access to barrier-free, non-judgmental, confidential support and follow-up is provided to youth, adults and seniors through our 24/7 phone lines and online services
- education and training programs that promote mental wellness and equip schools, organizations and communities to assist people at risk of suicide.
Our programs work to ensure timely access to support, destigmatize suicide and mental health concerns, increase awareness and skills for mental wellness, and engage a community of passionate volunteers.
