You don’t have to be suicidal to call the hotline; anyone is welcome to via phone, text or chat!
The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline, a program of Jannus, is committed to the prevention of suicide in Idaho. The hotline provides crisis intervention, emotional support, resource referrals, linkages to local services, and follow-up for all Idahoans, including those at risk for suicide and their families and loved ones. ISPH listens supportively to callers, empowering them to look at options and come up with their own solutions.
Crisis can happen to anyone – regardless of economic resources, gender, or age. Anyone can struggle with depression or have family members they are concerned about. Whether it’s a personal, family, or work issue, a major trauma, personal loss or chronic physical or mental illness, we listen and offer resources to help and enable callers to take positive steps forward.
The abused child, depressed, suicidal, or destitute adult has someone to call anonymously, and will get the tools they need at no cost. Suicide can almost always be avoided with early detection and proper intervention.
You are “our children”. We are concerned “family, and community” members who care about you.
Many of you are choosing to take your lives and think we don’t care.
We do care, and have launched a website to let you know that we value you, we will listen to you, and will provide you with resources for you to get help, as well as give you a voice.

YourLifeYourVoice.org is part of The Boys Town National Hotline.
Please contact us if you're depressed, contemplating suicide, being physically or sexually abused, on the run, addicted, threatened by gang violence, fighting with a friend or parent, or if you are faced with an overwhelming challenge.
The Boys Town National Hotline has been taking calls from kids and families since 1989. In fact, we have taken over 9 million calls since we started.
We encourage people to contact us by phone if they are in any danger, or if it’s a really serious issue. Talking on the phone can provide more immediate help, but we do know that sometimes you might be more comfortable contacting us via chat, text, or email.
Whichever way you'd like to contact us, we'd like to help! We are here 24/7.
Who Answers My Calls, Emails, and Texts?
Our counselors are available 24/7 and have a wide range of experiences working with kids and families who are frustrated, depressed, or just need someone to talk to. Most importantly, they genuinely care and want to help!
