Idaho Gets Suicide Prevention Hotline

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Several Idaho organizations are about to open a state suicide prevention hotline, five years after the previous hotline buckled under a lack of funding. Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline Director John Reusser told The Idaho Press-Tribune (http://bit.ly/Tu8SrA) that the organizations hoped to launch the hotline Nov. 12, but that date may be pushed back because the company that grants accreditation to suicide prevention lines was affected by Superstorm Sandy. Idaho has consistently had among the highest suicide rates in the nation, and it’s currently the only state without a certified suicide prevention hotline. Reusser says the local hotline will allow callers to talk to someone who understands rural Idaho and the issues that are close to home.
