(IDAHO FALLS) – After a six-year hiatus, Idaho’s Suicide Prevention Hotline is again up and running.
On Monday, Idaho became part of the National Suicide Prevention Program after getting funding last year. The hotline will be available 24 hours a day, but local counselors are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A fully-staffed 24-hour hotline is in the works.
Suicide is Idaho’s second highest cause of death for residents ages 15 to 34.
