Begun in 1958, the Suicide Prevention Center was the first in the country with a 24-hour suicide prevention crisis line using community volunteers. The primary crisis line of the SPC provides telephone counseling to individuals contemplating, threatening or attempting suicide, and is part of a national crisis intervention network.
