If you or someone you know is in crisis

Visit the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's website by clicking the banner below to get help for yourself or get information on how to help someone in crisis.  

You can also link to the chat feature on the website or phone the Hotline below.

If you are a veteran, press 1 to reach the Veterans Crisis Hotline. 

Veterans and their families can find information on how to text for help or use the confidential veterans chat feature here.

There is a widget/badge on the BIC home page that links you to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline should you or someone you know ever need it.  Please add the Lifeline number to your cell phone or phonebook so it can be just a fingertip away if you or someone you know should be in crisis.  Don't forget the Suicide Prevention Lifeline's tagline:  "With Help Comes Hope."
