The network of local crisis centers that make up the Lifeline relies on dedicated and trained volunteers to help provide needed support for people in crisis.
Contact your local crisis center to find volunteer opportunities in your community.
Have the Conversation
The Lifeline is made up of a national network of local crisis centers, which answer all calls to the Lifeline as well as calls from their local communities. Contact your local crisis center to find out how you can donate to help support them.
You can also choose to donate to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline program directly. Your online gift to the Lifeline will support our suicide prevention services.
