Lifeline Calls are our National Suicide Hotline.
Lifeline Calls are our National Suicide Hotline. Lifeline calls get directed to the appropriate call center depending on the area code of phone calling in from. In August of 2019 NCSS became a Lifeline Call Center. The below data is calls captured between October of 2020 and December of 2020.
Of those 48 unanswered calls 20 of those calls the caller abandoned or hung up when a clinician answered, 21 of those calls the clinician was already on the phone with another call and only 7 of those calls where unanswered due to the clinician on another crisis call.
In June of 2020 we extended out hours to 7 pm at night and in October of 2020 we extended those hours even more by answering until 8pm at night. It was also at this time that we started doing weekend hours of 12-4. Below shows our call volume for those Answered calls during those extended time frames.
NCSS is please to share our Outcomes Reports that cover our three service divisions: Behavioral Health; Children, Youth & Family Services; and Developmental Services. NCSS began incorporating Results Based Accountability (RBA) to measure outcomes over 14 years ago.
