About Us

The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (ISPH), a program of Jannus, started taking calls November 27th, 2012. In the almost 6 years that have followed, ISPH has been able to support thousands of individuals and families in crisis across the state. The hotline provides crisis intervention, emotional support, resource referrals, linkages to local services, and follow-up for all Idahoans, including those at risk for suicide and their families and loved ones. ISPH listens with support to callers, empowering them to look at options and come up with their own solutions.
