Call To Action

Fifty-five counties are not covered by the five Indiana NSPL crisis centers. Whenever someone calls the NSPL that is in a county not covered by an Indiana crisis center, then the call is routed out of state and into the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline backup center, where calls could take five minutes or longer to be answered. We want to ensure that any Hoosier who reaches out throught the NSPL not only gets a response in less than 10 seconds; but, that they get a response from the closest Hoosier NSPL Lifeline crisis center. If your organization is interested in becoming part of the NSPL – Contact Matt Taylor mtaylor@mhaofnyc.org via email and CC Jason Murrey, Jason.murrey@fssa.in.gov. You can also contact Jason Murrey directly at 317-966-5408.
