Suicide Crisis Hotline

Suicide Prevention Service is looking for new suicide crisis line volunteer responders. Join us for a rewarding experience while learning active listening skills, self-care, and suicide and crisis intervention techniques. 

Training is provided and no prior experience is required—only a willing and open heart. 18+
Volunteers receive 40+ hours of training on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings. After training, volunteers commit to a four hour shift, once a week for one year.  Training begins Friday, January 31st, 2020!

For 50 years Suicide Prevention Service has been serving Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito County residents through our services, which include a 24-hour suicide crisis hotline. More than anything, people with thoughts of suicide need a safe place to express their thoughts and feelings and be heard.  
For more information and to apply, please call our administrative line at (831) 459-9373, visit us at www.suicidepreventionservice.org, or email us at sps24hr@fsa-cc.org

We look forward to hearing from you!

[If you are suicidal, in crisis, or concerned for a loved one, please call our 24 hour suicide crisis hotline at 1-877-663-5433]
