Suicide Prevention Initiatives

Crisis Hotlines

This aim focuses on studying how crisis hotlines work to connect at-risk individuals to needed services, the overall effectiveness of hotlines at responding to crisis, and ways of improving the quality of support provided by crisis hotlines in a given community. It also focuses on heavily promoting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at all trainings, community events, and meetings. Over the course of many federally-funded projects, several thousand advertising materials have been distributed throughout the community.
