The Central Wyoming Counseling Center Suicide Prevention Lifeline Call Center is now open to callers at 1-800-253-TALK or 307-776-0610.
Despite one of the nation’s highest annual suicide per capita rates, Wyoming was the last state without a suicide call center. Thanks to partnerships with the Wyoming Department of Health and Governor Mark Gordon, the call center is now open and working with individuals across Wyoming who are considering suicide and facing other kinds of crises.
A suicide call center in Wyoming puts Wyoming residents in touch with other Wyoming people CWCC professionals can better relate to callers as well as quickly connect them to the local resources, including area law enforcement, nearby behavioral health centers and medical hospitals. This local connection will result in more positive outcomes, even through callers’ most difficult times.
Asking for help is the new Cowboy Tough, and CWCC is proud to take this momentous step in the fight against suicide.
