The Center for Suicide Awareness is a 501(c)(3) organization in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preventing suicide through proactive education, training, emotional support, collaboration, and intervention. The Center offers support groups for all ages of those who have lost a loved one to suicide, those who have attempted suicide, and for family members. We offer presentations for schools in helping students cope and know warning signs of suicide. We also offer training for educators, healthcare professionals, police, and others. Additionally, The Center works closely with Veterans providing resources and services for anyone who needs them.
In October 2014 The Center launched the HOPELINE, which is a text-in free service for help and hope. HOPELINE is the Emotional Support Text Line in the State of Wisconsin and provides service throughout the entire state. HOPELINE's purpose is to offer emotional support and resources before situations rise to crisis level. Texts received reflect struggles with breakups, job loss, bullying, LGBTQ issues, parental issues, school, friends, relationship issues or any struggle a person is experiencing.
