Family Service’s Helpline volunteer answers call and saves a Life

A college student recently called the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK), and one of Family Service Association of Bucks County’s volunteer listeners answered the phone. The caller told the listener that he had been thinking about suicide for a while now and, just the night before, he had sat on a bridge contemplating whether or not to jump off.

The caller said he had contacted the student health center to make a therapy appointment, but the earliest appointment he could get was a few weeks away. With the student’s permission, Family Service’s volunteer listener called the student health center and informed the staff of the caller’s thoughts of suicide and experience on the bridge. The student health center took this very seriously and requested that the caller come in immediately.
