Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (1-800-273-TALK) has received a $100,000 grant from the Idaho Division of Veteran’s Services. This gift is in addition to start-up funding and similar IDVS grants since launch, helping the hotline achieve and sustain 24/7 operations.
“In 2014 calls from veterans, National Guard members, active duty military and their families accounted for 23% of the hotline’s overall call volume,” said Hotline Director John Reusser, in a news release. “The division’s gift demonstrates Idaho’s clear commitment to supporting our service members and their loved ones.”
The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline is seeking volunteers. To get involved, call (208) 258-6992 or visit idahosuicideprevention.org.
