The Help Center strives to reduce the impact of suicide by providing suicide prevention and intervention services through outreach, education, awareness and advocacy.
Suicide is a major public health problem in Montana. In the past 30 years, our rate has always been one of the highest 4 rates in the United States. Suicide is the second leading cause of mortality among Montana’s youth and young adults, second only to motor vehicle crash deaths as a cause of deaths among 15-19 years olds.
We offer Gatekeeper Training for any community member interested to help prepare crisis response plans for both the prevention of suicide and its aftermath.
We also offer QPR training and ASIST training.
Suicide Hotline: 1-800-273-TALK is a 24-hour suicide hotline service to help those individuals and/or family and friends who are in crisis due relating to suicide thoughts or may have lost a loved one to suicide.
