Description


Established in 1968, The Effort's Suicide Prevention & Crisis Line assists those in their most hopeless hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, free of charge. A person does not have to be suicidal to talk with one of our counselors. The Suicide Prevention and Crisis Line provides its service to 32 counties in Northern and Central California, including callers in the 530, 707, 916, and 209 area codes. The Suicide Prevention Crisis Line is staffed by extensively trained, carefully selected volunteers who not only understand how a suicidal person reaches such despair, but also help the individual choose life. Services are provided free of charge, regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation. Crisis intervention services are provided free of charge. Donations are accepted for community outreach and general operating funds. This vital, life-saving program also extends beyond the phone lines to community groups, colleges, high schools and others through presentations and informational outreach.
