Crisis Intervention Centers

Suicide prevention crisis centers offer a toll-free hotline to anyone who is in suicidal crisis or emotional distress, or who is concerned about someone else who is in distress.

Callers are routed to immediate counseling and local mental health referrals.

The AFSP Public Policy Team is conducting research and analysis on this topic. An official AFSP policy proposal is being developed and will be posted once it becomes available.
