What We Do
The Center for Suicide Awareness brings help, hope, and resources to families and individuals in our communities through programs that reach others where they are at and when they need it most. Of the many Center programs and initiatives, bringing HOPELINE, the text-based emotional support service, to all of Wisconsin, has given individuals across our state free emotional support anytime, from anywhere by simply texting: HOPELINE to 741741.
The Center for Suicide Awareness brings awareness and help to many individuals coping with suicide, a loss from suicide, and educating many about suicide. With our many events and programs that we put on throughout the year we can bring awareness to suicide.
