09.26.2022 - Crisis Help Message

With the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline’s recent transition to 9-8-8 and in acknowledgement of September as National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we consulted with experts at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to add messaging to customer platforms and findhelp.org to support individuals in crisis. 

According to Clinical Psychology & Psychotherapy's article by Paashaus and others, 44% of suicide attempts happen within a 10-minute crisis point. The central location of the Crisis Lifeline message on homepages ensures that seekers in crisis can immediately connect to life-saving services, without needing to first conduct a ZIP Code search.

If you have any questions or want to learn more, please contact your findhelp Customer Success Manager.
