Judy Should Have Called Us!

Check out Renee Mitchell’s column in the Oregonian today.  Talked about a woman named Judy who may have been suicidal and got no help at all from a couple of crisis lines she called, including the 211 regional line.  If Judy had called us, she would have gotten a trained crisis worker who would have helped her, complete with followup.  Oregon Partnership’s crisis lines – operating 24-7 – receive some fifteen thousand calls a year.

 We are the only state-wide suicide intervention line in Oregon.  Local agencies know about us, which makes it all the more frustrating this woman wasn’t given our numbers.

 1-800-273-TALK or 1-800-SUICIDE
