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
