San Francisco Suicide Prevention’s 24-hour Crisis Line provides immediate crisis intervention and emotional support to everyone who calls. Since 1962, we have been answering the telephone around the clock, whenever we are needed. We have been able to maintain this service for nearly fifty years through the wonderful dedication of nearly 120 trained individuals who volunteer their time to answer the phones and help their neighbors through a crisis. All volunteers are trained and supervised by a professional staff, and all receive ongoing training to hone their skills with the newest developments in the field of suicide prevention.
