Our Suicide Prevention Efforts
Long Island Crisis Center (LICC), a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) private agency, was established in 1971 and has existed since then as a 24 hours-a-day/7 days-a-week/365 days-a-year suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline. In its forty-four years, it has grown from one hotline to seven. It is staffed round-the-clock by volunteer counselors who undergo nine months of intensive training. Annually we respond to more than 11,000 calls on our telephone hotlines, and through our online and mobile chat service, ChatLIVE Long Island™.
