Every 40 seconds, someone in the world takes their own life, and the numbers are rising in some parts of the world. In the United States alone, suicide rates have increased by 35% between 1999 and 2018.


VIA LINK answers the National Suicide Lifeline for all Louisiana area codes. Our staff is available 24/7 for anyone who is going through a hard time, having thoughts about suicide, or just needs to talk. Crisis Intervention Specialists are ready to listen, provide emotional support and help you develop a safety plan if necessary. Specialists are not here to judge or tell you what you should do. We understand that people are the experts in their own lives.


Anyone who needs support can call 1-800-273-TALK(8255).
