Text Message Peer Support Coming July 21st!

Warmline text imageOpen to everyone in Los Angeles County, The Project Return Peer Support Network Warmline has provided anonymous, non-crisis, peer-to-peer telephone support for over 20 years. Warmline peer supporters use their personal lived experience with mental health challenges to provide direct support, resources, and referrals to callers. All Warmline supporters are experienced, Certified Peer Advocates with training in Mental Health First Aid and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).

On July 21, 2014 the Warmline will introduce free, HIPAA-compliant text message support. Senior Program Manager Angelica Garcia says the new service will bring peer support to a broader range of people. “We are very excited to bring this innovative service to the people we serve.” Garcia said. ”Many people who call our Warmline feel lonely and isolated. For some, a text message is more comfortable than a phone call and can soften the conversation if the caller is upset.”

The text messaging service will be available for both English and Spanish speakers during the regular Warmline hours: Monday through Friday - 5 pm to 10 pm, and Saturdays - 11 am to 4 pm.

Suicide Prevention Sheds a Longstanding Taboo: Talking About Attempts

The New York Times logoAAS-Logo-horizontal

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), suicide was the tenth leading cause of death for all ages in 2010. Project Return Peer Support Network was part of a coordinated social media campaign at the 47th Annual Conference of the American Association of Suicidology (AAS), which registered over 7.6 million Twitter hits. During the conference the AAS Board voted to recognize a historically invisible portion of its membership: people who have tried to kill themselves and survived. Organizations like LiveThroughThis.org are sharing stories and images of suicide survivors in an effort to help people cope and connect with others.

The April 13, 2014 New York Times examines this trend, quoting mental health leaders and PRPSN partners. Read the full story below:


Suicide Prevention Sheds a Longstanding Taboo: Talking About Attempts

By BENEDICT CAREY - APRIL 13, 2014   

The relationship had become intolerably abusive, and after a stinging phone call one night, it seemed there was only one way to end the pain. Enough wine and pills should do the job — and would have, except that paramedics barged through the door, alerted by her lover.

"I very rarely tell the story in detail publicly, it's so triggering and sensational," said Dese'Rae L. Stage, 30, a photographer and writer living in Brooklyn who tried to kill herself in 2006. "I talk about what led up to it, how helpless I felt — and what came after."
