Call the Friendship Line toll-free at (800) 971-0016

The Friendship Line, a phone counseling and outreach program, is open to adults 60 and over.  This   service is free of charge and is a 24-hour crisis and support line for seniors needing to talk for any reason.  The Friendship Line is a service of the National Institute on Aging, Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention and provides compassionate counseling, assessment and crisis intervention. 

We know that mental health and addictive disorder prevention and treatment works for all ages, and to restrict services to older adults is not acceptable! We must advocate on their behalf.
