The Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas Is Here to Help.



The Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas Is Here to Help


Crisis can strike any time, day or night. When feelings of hopelessness, isolation, shame, and anxiety drive people to think that suicide is their only option, they can't wait for help. They need to talk to someone...now.


If you are in crisis or contemplating suicide, call us. Our trained, caring volunteers are ready to listen.


We're available 24/7 at (214) 828-1000.


Beginning on Saturday, November 21, 2015 anyone with a crisis can text one of our trained volunteers at 972-533-3323. This service will be available every Saturday and Sunday from 6PM-10PM. Texts are treated in the same manner as any phone call, and senders will receive a return text from a trained volunteer.


Background and History

The Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas is located in Dallas, Texas. However, we answer calls throughout the Metroplex as well as calls for two national crisis lines. We have been in continuous operation since 1968. (Read more about our history from Founding Chair Dr. Cliff Jones.)

Location

Housing for the center is provided by the Meadows Foundation in the Beilharz block of the Wilson Historic District near downtown Dallas.

Administration

A 28-member governing board oversees the activities of the center. Board members come from business, the professions, universities, and community service. A Clinical Advisory Board of mental health professionals advises the agency director and staff.

An AAS-Certified Agency

The Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas is one of fewer than 80 centers nationwide to have achieved certification by the American Association of Suicidology, the national accrediting body for suicide prevention and crisis intervention centers.

24-Hour Crisis Line

Each month, 1,500 people in crisis call us at 214.828.1000 to speak to a trained, caring counselor. Anytime, day or night, someone always answers.

Survivors of Suicide (SOS)

A support group program facilitated by trained counselors for family and friends of those who have completed suicide.

Crisis Debriefing Services

Trained teams visit schools or businesses within 48 hours of a suicide, meeting with and counseling groups intimately affected by the suicide.
