Central Valley Suicide Prevention Hotline is an immediate and consistent support for individuals in crisis or experiencing a suicidal crisis. The hotline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is confidential and free.
The trained staff and volunteers conduct the following:
- Save the caller and offers immediate support
- Develop a safety plan for the caller

The Central Valley Suicide Prevention Hotline is located in Fresno and serves the following five counties: Fresno, Kings, Merced, Mariposa and Stanislaus.
CVSPH is funded by the voter-approved Mental Health Services Act (Prop. 63). It is one of several Initiatives implemented by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA), an organization of California counties working to improve mental health outcomes for individuals, families and communities.
