The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline Needs Volunteers

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. It’s a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic.

The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline is seeing an increase in activity this year and they’re looking for more volunteers.

Last year they received about 6,000 calls and texts to the hotline, and this week will most likely surpass that.

Volunteers in the past were required to be over the age of 21, but now they will accept people 18 and over.

If you feel passionate about helping others and would like to get involved, click HERE to learn more. Training classes will run from October 3 – 28.

If you don’t have the extra time to give to volunteer, the upcoming Walk to Prevent Suicide is another great way to make a difference!

The walk will raise awareness and funds for the AFSP to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate, and support survivors and families of suicide loss.
The walk is Saturday, September 30 at Julius Kleiner Memorial Park in Meridian.
Tawsha from our sister station, Kiss FM, will be hosting the walk and my family and I will be there to support.

Check-in and “day of” registration starts at 8:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m.

If you, or someone you know, is in crisis, the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline phone number is 208-398-4357.
