NNED Partner of the Month
Posted: September 01, 2017
In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country the NNED selects an organization to highlight once a month. Didi Hirsch has been selected as the Partner of the Month for September in honor of National Suicide Prevention Month.
Didi Hirsch transforms lives by providing quality mental health and substance abuse services in communities where stigma or poverty limit access. From 11 sites and in nearly 100 schools, the agency helps almost 100,000 adults and children throughout Southern California each year. Its Suicide Prevention Center - the first in the nation to provide 24/7 crisis counseling - receives over 80,000 calls on its Crisis Line annually and provides support groups for people who have lost loved ones to suicide or have attempted it.
The agency's Suicide Prevention Center's Crisis Line has language capabilities in Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Learn more about their Crisis Line services.
