Crisis & Suicide Intervention Hotline

We can help.

No one should have to feel completely alone when facing a crisis. Our 24-hour crisis line is there for people who are in crisis or contemplating suicide. If you are experiencing thoughts of suicide, are concerned about a loved one, need referrals, or just want someone to listen, our Crisis Intervention Specialists are available 24 hours a day to provide support for any problem you may be facing. Call or text now to speak with someone. We want you to know you're not alone, and we can help you get through whatever it is you're facing. Call (317) 251-7575 or Text CSIS to 839863.
