Crisis Text Line
Crises don't always lend themselves to a phone call. That's why the Crisis Text Line is an important means of reaching out. Anyone can text "4hope" to 741741 and get connected to a trained person who is ready to help.
The Crisis Text Line is not a replacement for counseling, but it can serve as a good starting point for people needing help to cope with a crisis. Your messages are confidential.
If you are in crisis or know someone in crisis, help is available!

The Signs of Suicide® Program (SOS) is a school-based suicide prevention program that serves secondary school students ages 13 to 18. The program teaches students that suicide is directly related to mental illness—typically depression—and that it is not a normal reaction to stress or emotional upset. This approach stands in direct contrast to other programs that seek to destigmatize suicide by separating it from mental illness. SOS concentrates on teaching youths to recognize the signs of suicide and depression in themselves and others and the specific actions needed to respond to those signs. SOS is also currently being used in other non-school settings that serve youth. The program's primary objectives are to educate teens that depression is a treatable illness and to equip them to respond to a potential suicide in a friend or family member using the SOS technique. For more information, contact Marcie Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org or (513) 732-5400.
There are also trainings that assist clinicians with improving identification and treatment of suicidality.
CAMS Framework is first and foremost a clinical philosophy of care. It is a therapeutic framework for suicide-specific assessment and treatment of a patient’s suicidal risk. It is a flexible approach that can be used across theoretical orientations and disciplines for a wide range of suicidal patients across treatment settings and different treatment modalities.
The clinician and patient engage in a highly interactive assessment process and the patient is actively involved in the development of their own treatment plan. Every session of CAMS intentionally utilizes the patient’s input about what is and is not working. All assessment work in CAMS is collaborative; they seek to have the patient be a “co-author” of their own treatment plan. For more information, contact Marcie Keith at email@example.com or (513) 732-5400.
