Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County
Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County is a non-profit organization with the mission of providing crisis prevention and intervention, education and community outreach services to the residents of Yolo County.
Life presents us with many challenges, some more difficult than others. Relationship problems, financial worries, job stress and other problems can be overwhelming and can often lead to depression. Sometimes people don't know where to turn or they feel embarrassed to ask for help – so instead they never reach out. Our 24-hour crisis lines strive to make help accessible, confidential and available whenever someone needs it.
Our aim is for happier, healthier lives and a decrease in the incidence of suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, family and community violence, and other destructive or desperate behaviors. We believe:
· It helps to talk things out.
· It helps to know that you are not alone.
· It helps to know that there are resources available.
You'd be surprised how just talking about your problem can lift a huge weight off your shoulders. We happen to be very good listeners.
Call us now, any time of day or night. Our services are free and strictly confidential.
