What We Do:

The Crisis Hotline is an Idaho Non-Profit where a person in any crisis can call to get help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The center provides confidential crisis intervention service providing information and referrals. The Hotline offers callers immediate help, hope, and healing to empower individuals facing serious life challenges, suicidal thoughts, emotional or situational problems. Sometimes all someone needs is just a listening ear.

Crises can happen to anyone – regardless of economic resources, gender, or age. Anyone can struggle with depression or have family members they are concerned about. Whether it’s a personal, family, or work issue, a major trauma, personal loss or chronic physical or mental illness, we listen and offer resources to help and enable callers to take positive steps forward. The abused child, depressed, suicidal, or destitute adult has someone to call anonymously, and will get the tools they need at no cost. Suicide can almost always be avoided with early detection and proper intervention.

The Hotline was founded in 1987 and is located in Blaine County, Idaho. Our hotline is staffed by trained volunteers who go through an in-depth training program on a broad spectrum of topics. The Crisis Hotline networks with other agencies – acting as a clearinghouse for services offered by a variety of state and local groups. Particularly in rural areas where clients may be less aware of available services, a call to the hotline can put the individuals in touch with the nearest support system.
