The Center for Suicide Awareness is a non-profit organization that offers support groups for all ages of those who have lost a loved one to suicide, those who have attempted suicide, and for family members. We offer presentations for schools in helping students cope and know warning signs of suicide. We also offer training for educators, healthcare professionals, police, the video gaming community and others.
We serve all types of groups and will do everything we can to accommodate anyone, however if you feel like there is something you should let us know that may be a barrier to your eligibility, please call to verify for our services.
Anyone interested can call our number, or reach out to us using any of our social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
Along with suicide prevention, we are an emerging force in the area of mental health support. HOPELINE, is a text-in (versus voice call-in) free emotional support service providing hope, help, and support when it’s needed most. HOPELINE serves anyone in any type of situation providing them access to free, 24/7 emotional support and information they need via the medium they already use and trust: text. HOPELINE’s purpose is to offer emotional support and resources before situations rise to crisis level. Texts received reflect struggles with breakups, relationship issues, job loss, bullying, LGBTQ issues, parental issues, school, friends, or any struggle a person is experiencing.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reaching out to as many people virtually as we can. Examples include our podcast. Our podcast puts out weekly episodes talking to anyone and everyone. Our theme is “everyone has a story”. Your story matters and there is someone out there that can resonate with what you are or have gone through.
We also are reaching out through the video game community, via Twitch. The Center streams Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings to interact with anyone that would like to come, relax, play games, or chat about something that is going on with them.
