Program Descriptions

Suicide Prevention Services: Volunteers answer the suicide prevention hotlines  every day of the year. In addition to the 24-Hour main hotline, there is a hotline for teens and another for older adults. The program staff come to schools, churches and colleges to help people learn the warning signs that mean someone is thinking of attempting suicide and what to do if someone is showing these signs. They also tell students about the hotline.

Adult, Child and Family Counseling: This program helps provide ‘talk therapy’ for adults, couples, children and families. Also can arrange for persons who need medicine or medical care to get it.

Elder Focus/ Nurse Outreach: This program helps older adults get mental health treatment, often for depression, and have their physical condition checked. The nurses also see people of other age groups.

Prevention, Consultation and Education: This program helps people learn about mental illness and stress and how to feel better.

Alcohol and Drug Counseling: This program helps people who are addicted to alcohol and other drugs stop using and stay drug free.
