Oregon Partnership has a crisis line that
responds to more than 35,000 calls a year,
half of which are on the suicide Lifeline.
The Crisis line provides free, confidential intervention, support, referrals and immediate assistence by highly trained staff and volunteers.
A number of military veterans, soldiers and their families
are turning to the crisis lines as well.
Oregon Partnership has also forged an
ongoing relationship with the National Guard's
training in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills.
OP is trying to establish a dedicated line fror returning soldiers, veterans and their families.
Additionally there is a youth line which is a peer-peer line for teens.
Young people work with adults to answer calls on
diverse topics including substance abuse,
depression, self-harm, dating violence and other issues.
There is also a crisis line for speakers of Spanish
who are experiencing alcohol and drug problems.
