Make a Gift, Save a Life
Our school-based suicide prevention education and outreach, combined, are our largest program, reaching hundreds of thousands of students, educators, parents, and community members annually. From 115,000 people in 2017 to over 410,000 in 2019, our Prevention Staff work tirelessly with school districts and community groups to take awareness and prevention education to classrooms and neighborhoods across Arizona.
Teen Lifeline’s crisis hotline has operated 365 days a year since 1986. Every day, teens from across Arizona who need to talk through a problem or a crisis call Teen Lifeline. At the other end of that call is a trained Peer Counselor ready to listen and to help the caller identify positive options. These trained Peer Counselors are literally life-saving superheroes.
Tell teens they are not alone
At Teen Lifeline, our commitment to preventing teen suicide by enhancing resiliency in youth and fostering supportive communities never waivers. We envision all youth possessing a sense of connectedness and hope for their future. It’s a big goal, but we and our supporters aim to reduce youth suicide in Arizona by 50% by 2030.
Ourstaff, teen volunteers, and supporters work endlessly to carry out this mission. From talking to students, teachers, parents, and other community members to answering calls from teens in crisis in that moment, from inviting Teen Lifeline to speak to employee groups or civic clubs, everyone is focused on creating a life-saving connection to hope.
