January 20, 2014: WRAL aired an interview with HopeLine’s Executive Director, Margaux Austin, about the newly launched Teen TalkLine. HopeLine is thrilled they have promoted our new service that targets teenagers struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. You can view the video HERE or by clicking the image above. This new instant messaging program allows individuals to reach out to us in a medium they are most comfortable.
Currently the U.S. has the highest rate of suicide in 15 years. Not only is suicide the 10th leading cause of death for all ages but is the third leading cause of death for ages 15 to 24. Among these young adults there is approximately 100-200 attempts for every completed suicide. HopeLine is proud to launch our new program to combat this preventable death. You can view our new service at www.teentalklinenc.org. We have volunteers available to chat from 4pm -11pm everyday.
Remember you can always reach HopeLine though our crisis line at 919-231-4525 or Toll Free 1-877-235-4525
