Suicide Prevention Service

[En Español]

If you are feeling suicidal,
if you know someone who is,
if you are worried about someone,
or if you have lost someone to suicide…

we want you to know that you are not alone—
help is available.

Sad WomanYou don’t have to wait until a crisis occurs. These feelings do not have to last forever; and no one has to experience this alone.

If you, or someone you know, is experiencing

  • increased anxiety and/or depression
  • general hopelessness
  • changes in mood, sleep, or eating patterns
  • increased drug and/or alcohol use
  • grief over losing a loved one to suicide

Please give our confidential line a call and speak with one of our trained volunteers. All calls to our suicide crisis line are completely confidential and your information will be protected. Click here for a more complete list of warning signs.

If you are a resident of Monterey, Santa Cruz, or San Benito Counties, call our 24-hour toll free, multilingual suicide crisis line. Callers will talk to someone who is compassionate, supportive, and accepting of anyone experiencing suicidal thoughts or a general life crisis.

In addition to our confidential suicide crisis line, you can call our administrative line at (831) 459-9373 to arrange for community education, set up trainings for service providers, or learn about bereavement support for someone who has lost a loved one to suicide.

You can also use the forms on our Contact Us page to provide feedback on any of our services, to volunteer, or to schedule community outreach presentations or trainings.
