TEEN LIFELINE INC
July 2, 2012

Teen Lifeline is an organization I learned about through their Fundraising Coordinator, who has shared the history and mission of the program with me. They directly address the tragedy of teen suicide in Arizona by running a telephone hotline for any teens in Az (or the country, because they receive overflow calls), who are experiencing any concerns relating to suicidal thoughts, abuse, incest, family issues, or personal or mental health concerns. When I saw a documentary film called Bullied Into Silence, I heard even more about Teen Lifeline's high school and college students who volunteer their time to staff the hotline. They go through rigorous training, paid for by donations, to become confident and capable on the hotline. From what I've heard from staff, they are amazing people who have directly led to saving lives. Not only do they operate a hotline, but Teen Lifeline hosts events and performs outreach in schools to educate teachers, students, and parents about suicide.
