Suicide Prevention

If you or someone you know is talking about suicide, please call the suicide prevention hotline 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

Crisis Intervention Services, now a part of our Community Crisis Center (CCC), has been the suicide prevention service for many years in Sedgwick County. At CCC, priority is given to callers who are at risk for suicide.

Who should call?

If you feel you are in a mental health crisis, whether or not you are thinking about killing yourself, please call us. Family members or others concerned about someone else who may be experiencing a crisis are welcome to call as well. People have called us for help with substance abuse, economic worries, relationship and family problems, sexual orientation, illness, getting over abuse, depression, and mental and physical illness. No matter what problems you are dealing with, we want to help you find a reason to keep living. You will be helped by a skilled, trained crisis worker who will listen to your problems and will share options for treatment and resources available to help.
