Crisis Resources

Managing a crisis is a difficult task.  Having the tools to navigate through a crisis can help ease some of the stress we typically face during these challenges. 


988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline - SAMHSA
If you are feeling alone and having thoughts of suicide-whether or not you are in crisis - or know someone who is, don't remain silent. Talk to someone you can trust through the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline -- Call or text 988 or chat the lifeline.

Free Poster to Help Reduce Suicides -- 988 assures confidentiality!
Suicidal Correctional staff may not reach out for help, if they fear that a local resource like Peer Support or EAP will make their ideation known -- and result in losing their gun and employment. However, the 988 Crisis line is confidential and offers help without requiring a name or location. 

Click here to download the poster. Please post this at your agency's time-clock and break rooms, so that any staff in distress knows that 988 is a safe resource.  This flyer could help save a life.
