In the wake of Robin Williams suicide we are reminded of the despair of those afflicted with depression. Since 1968, The Suicide and Crisis Center has been taking calls from desperate people on the verge of suicide. Each month, 1,500 people in crisis call speak to a trained, caring counselor. Anytime, day or night, someone always answers the 24 hour hotline. “Suicide remains our primary area of expertise. Suicide represents man’s most extreme state of personal crisis, generally the most frightening possibility that professional people-helpers face in dealing with emotionally disturbed persons. But suicide also is the ultimate threat to parents who want so to help their children manage the risky issues of growing up. We have much to learn about helping people talk out their inner struggles instead of losing hope and destroying themselves.” Cliff A. Jones, Ph.D. Organizing Chair, 1966-1969.
