The only hotline number for Suicide Prevention I could find on http://orange.networkofcare.org/mh/emergency.cfm is the Suicide Prevention Center: (310)-391-1253 24-Hrs. Please also include 1-877-7CRISIS or 877-727-4747 and for Spanish 1-887-772-2365. 1-800-Suicide is continuing to be in service and should also be on the web site. (The same trained counselor from the Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center in Culver City will answers all the calls but 1-800-Suicide and 1877-7CRISIS are easier to remember. Please also list Suicide Prevention as a topic on the web site.
Thank you, Janice DeLoof, OC Mental Health Board Member
