As of Tuesday, December 5, 2017
The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (ISPH) celebrates five years of continuous operations this month. ISPH launched on Nov. 26, 2012, and has grown steadily ever since, adding shifts to achieve 24/7 phone response in 2014.
ISPH implemented a combined local voice and crisis text line, 208-398-4357 (HELP) in 2016, and will now respond to crisis chats via its web portal, www.idahosucideprevention.org/chat/. Crisis chat response hours will be the same as current crisis text response hours: Monday-Friday, 3 p.m.- Midnight, with expanded hours as staffing levels permit.
