Today is National Suicide Prevention Day.
Following the 2016 election, The Crisis Clinic has experienced a serious and concerning drop off of both volunteers and donations. We've confirmed with other groups that people now tend to direct much of their energy and money to political, social justice, and legal organizations. That's good, but don't forget about the great work the first responders at the crisis line perform for people living on the edge.
If you've ever thought about donating or volunteering, now is the time! If you are interested or have questions, message me, or go directly to our website: https://crisisclinic.
If you or someone you know needs help, call 1-800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can also text HELLO to 741-741 for free, 24-hour support from the Crisis Text Line. Outside of the U.S., please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of resources.
