Join us June 8th, 2019 from 11 am – 2 pm at the Country Inn and Suites Boise West (3355 E. Pine Ave, Meridian, ID) for a summer kick off block party !
The Country Inn and Suites in Meridian and the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council have partnered together to raise awareness for suicide prevention and bring positivity to the youth in our communities at their Summer Kick Off Block Party. They hope to raise money to support the launch of 24/7 crisis text services at the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (ISPH) and to raise awareness for the sources of strength programs in Idaho schools.
There will be vendors, entertainment, and informational booths from organizations around the community all focused on creating a positive culture and future for today’s youth and supporting them.
All proceeds from the block party will go to the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline.
The Treasure Valley Association of Health Underwriters (TVAHU) held their 8th Annual Chapter Bowling Tournament with all proceeds going to benefit the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. There was lots of great bowling and prizes won and it was a lot of fun!
A huge thank you to TVAHU and everyone who attended for raising $5,500 for the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. We couldn’t do what we do without partners like you.
We are excited to announce that the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline was chosen as Micron’s Employee Charity Choice of the year!
We are so excited to be working with Micron and are very thankful for their financial support. It comes at a very important time for the Hotline as we are trying to expand our capacity to meet the growing call volume. This gift is going to help make that possible.
This partnership began with a $25,000 check to the Hotline but this year long relationship means so much more! The Hotline will be promoted throughout the year for employee giving and volunteer opportunities. We will also be working with Micron to offer suicide trainings, Micron staff will be attending the ASIST workshop, and we hope to working with and learning from their Artificial Intelligence partner from Stanford University researching suicide prevention using data analysis.
It will be a big year and we are extremely grateful to Micron and all of their employees for their support of the hotline and for choosing to make Idaho a suicide safer state.

Matt Volke lost a loved one to suicide, and music was his way of coping with grief. Amazingly, his friends began to collaborate and support him through it. With their help, they created this project called Grace in the Desert, completely dedicated to raise funds for suicide prevention. Every dollar raised by the sale of these songs goes 100% directly to the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline.
Play It Forward is a website where artists support non-profit organizations by selling their music in exchange for charitable donations.
The Play It Forward model benefits everyone. Musicians gain exposure and sell more songs by supporting causes. Fans make a positive impact while purchasing music they enjoy. Charities benefit from the funds raised through the website.
The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline, Book It Forward, and
AmeriCorps National are excited to have partnered with Boise High School art
teacher Melissa Thompson for the Idaho Suicide Prevention Bookmark Project.
Melissa asked her students to create artwork for bookmarks
to help raise awareness of suicide prevention in the state of Idaho. These
bookmarks will be distributed to school and public libraries, health and
community centers, and other key locations around the state.
The following student’s art was selected to be distributed on bookmarks in the spring of 2019: Julia Nixon, Grace Gaddis, Tess Kramer, Kendra McDaniel, Paloma Link, Iris Smith, Cedar Archibald, and Max Shores. Runners up: Gracie Hall, Katherine Taylor, Audrey Lin, Sophia Mullin, and Hallie Campbell.
The bookmarks are set to be released at the Boise High School 2019 Brave Together Summit on March 13th.
