24-Hour Crisis Hotline
Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour crisis line often serves as the first point of contact for individuals who are seeking help, support, and information. Unfortunately, crisis can affect anyone at any time. The need for emotional support or referral assistance is something most individuals encounter at some point in their lives. Staff and volunteers are available 24/7/365 to help individuals discover the skills and resources that they uniquely possess and that allow them to develop solutions and maximize self-sufficiency.
If people have the opportunity to talk through a crisis, the risk of harmful occurrences to self or others is greatly diminished. Immediate support during a crisis has also been shown to greatly reduce risks of abuse and neglect. One of the biggest appeals of our crisis lines is the anonymous and confidential nature of the free service available to ANYONE in need of assistance. During times of crisis, people often feel more comfortable talking to someone with whom they do not have to identify themselves, enabling them to discuss feelings and concerns in a way that may differ from talking with friends and family members.
Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour crisis line provides a safe and non-judgmental source of support for individuals in any type of crisis. In addition to our 24-hour crisis hotline, we also offer crisis intervention services through text messaging. To access this service, text the keyword ANSWER to 839863.
All services provided by Crisis Call Center are free of charge and available to anyone in any crisis situation. The Center does not practice nor condone discrimination on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation , age, religion, national origin, marital status, military status, political belief, mental or physical handicap, or any other preference or personal characteristic, condition, or status.
The mission of the Nevada Office of Suicide Prevention is to reduce the rates of suicide and suicidal acts in Nevada through statewide collaborative efforts to develop, implement and evaluate a state strategy that advances the goals and objectives of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention.
It is our hope that the Nevada Suicide Prevention Plan will provide a catalyst for collaborative action, improved understanding and increased wellness in communities across Nevada. This plan is based on the strong belief that everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention, and those individuals and groups that address the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of individuals and communities must work together if we are to be effective.
The Rape Crisis Center – Serving Southern Nevada
Founded in 1974 as Community Action Against Rape (CAAR), The Rape Crisis Center (RCC) began as the combined effort of Florence McClure and Sandra Petta, two women living in Las Vegas who were outraged by the lack of resources and respect for those affected by sexual assault. Mrs. McClure ran The RCC out of her home, with the goal of helping those in Clark County heal from the trauma of sexual violence, and today, the goal remains the same.
Currently, The RCC serves all of Clark County, Nevada. The organization is committed to providing crisis intervention, advocacy, support, and education to those affected by sexual violence. In order for The RCC to assist victims in the transition to become survivors, our non-profit organization depends on a core base of dedicated volunteers and staff. These individuals are empathetic and enthusiastic people who give their time, energy, and personal sacrifice to continue to serve Clark County’s victims of sexual violence. This service is provided through face-to-face and over-the- phone intervention with newly victimized individuals.
We commit to offering help, hope, and healing to those affected by sexual violence.
We provide education, awareness and support as far as our arms can reach.
