Crisis Line Update

ISPH is committed supporting our callers at this time! Due to social distancing recommendations, only paid staff will be responding to calls to the hotline  for the next 2 weeks. We’ve asked our volunteer responders to stay home during that time to protect everyone’s health  Please keep in mind that this will lower the number of phone responders available to take calls, so your calls to 1-800-273-8255  may be routed another center in the lifeline network. If you call our local voice number 208-398-4357, you may need to leave a voicemail, and one of our responders will call you back shortly. The capacity of the ISPH crisis text and chat response is also reduced at this time. You can also reach out to the Crisis Text Line at 741741 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s chat portal at suicidepreventionlifeline.org/chat for crisis text/ chat response .
