Suicide Prevention Service of the Central Coast is seeking volunteer responders for its Suicide Crisis Line. In the past 5 years, over 400 Central Coast residents have died from suicide. While the problem is very real, prevention is possible and powerful. Through training, volunteers learn how to connect with, listen to and support someone who is suicidal in staying safe. Volunteers who answer the phone say that the experience has changed their lives forever.
Volunteer training begins on April 16, 2013 with no prior experience is necessary. To join the community of dedicated and caring responders, please call (831) 459-9373 or visit online at www.suicidepreventionservice.org.
