  Our Mission:
"Helping those in crisis, especially suicidal crisis, find hope for the future."
T he Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas never goes on vacation. Since 1969, we have been here day and night, to answer calls from survivors of suicide (those who have lost a loved one to suicide and may be in emotional crisis, themselves) from family members worried about a loved one or friend and from anyone of any age in crisis.

I t has been a challenging year for us. We continue to stretch our financial and volunteer resources to reach as many teens, parents, school personnel, veterans and loved ones of family members in crisis. Available free-of-charge to the community, we are able to do what we do because of donors who believe, like we do, that people in crisis can't wait. Now, in the summer of 2018, we urgently need your help to maintain the highest level of crisis intervention work in our North Texas communities. 

P lease consider a donation of your time, your money or both. 

We need you.

Program Update
Teens Can Survive

Since 2002, the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas has provided voluntary mental health checkups for North Texas middle school and high school students. In light of recent school tragedies and discussions about solutions -- we strongly believe our suicide prevention and awareness programming (Teens Can Survive © ) is extremely important.

We also believe our Program Director, Jennifer Huynh, and our Program Analyst, Melinda Dunbar, are two of the best young mental health professionals in Texas and with their team are doing incredible work in our community.

Please consider a donation right now as we all seek solutions.
Thank you.
