Teen Texting Program with Mental Health America of Tippecanoe
IU Health Arnett has partnered with Mental Health America of Tippecanoe County to bring suicide prevention resources to our teens. Knowing that the preferred method of communication is texting, there is a need to provide a local resource for teens to text when feeling stressed or suicidal. The number to text is 765-742-0244.
The Safe2Talk texts are responded by employees and volunteers of Mental Health America of Tippecanoe County (MHA). All texts are responded to in seconds and the line is staffed 24/7. MHA staff and volunteers go through an extensive assessment and successfully complete 40 hours of classroom training, as well as on-the-job preparation. Safe2Talk is certified as a crisis center by the American Association of Suicidality as part of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Only the best practices, policies, and procedures are used.
In association with the Safe2Talk initiative all TSC administrators and school counselors have been trained in QPR. QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer. These are three steps anyone can learn to help prevent suicide. This training session teaches attendees how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors associated with suicidal thoughts and when to utilize QPR. Just like CPR, QPR is an emergency response to someone in crisis and can save lives. This training is recognized by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as an evidence-based training.
For additional information please contact the TSC school counselor in your respective school or contact Mental Health America of Tippecanoe County at 765-742-1800.
