Why We Walk

Long Island Crisis Center (LICC), a not-for-profit, 501(c) (3) private agency, was established in 1971 and has existed since then as a 24 hours-a-day/7 days-a-week/365 days-a-year suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline. In its forty-four years, it has grown from one hotline to seven. It is staffed round-the-clock by volunteer counselors who undergo nine months of intensive training. Annually we respond to more than 11,000 calls on telephone hotlines, online and mobile chat, and walk-in counseling.

We Walk Because…
  • We understand that suicide prevention is only effective when we can de-stigmatize the subject of suicide and talk openly and honestly about it
  • We are honoring the lives of those who have died by suicide
  • We want family and friends who have lost a loved one to suicide to have a day to acknowledge their loss in public
  • We know that suicide crosses all religious, racial, ethnic, economic, and educational lines – it affects everyone
  • We need to let everyone know that at Long Island Crisis Center “It’s Okay To Ask For Help”
  • “We Walk…We Talk” together and we go home knowing that we may be saving a life
