Mission: Long Island Crisis Center provides 24/7, free, high quality, confidential and non-judgmental services and programs to support and empower Long Islanders at critical times in their lives.

Long Island Crisis Center (LICC), a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) agency, was established in 1971 and has existed since then as a 24 hours-a-day/7 days-a-week/365 days-a-year suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline. In its forty-two years, it has grown from one hotline to six.  It is staffed round-the-clock by volunteer counselors.

Their nine-month training prepares them to handle calls for help ranging from suicide ideation to substance abuse to homelessness to financial ruin to relational abuse and more. We respond to “Any One, Any Time, Any Problem.”

Annually, we respond to more than 11,000 calls on our phone hotlines, on-line and live chat site, mobile phone texting and walk-in counseling. Translation services are currently available on our phone hotline!

I volunteer with the Crisis Center, and it's been great have an opportunity to really make a difference. It's not like the work is easy ... or enjoyable ... but the satisfaction of knowing I've helped someone in a difficult place always is. I highly recommend volunteering to anyone who has the strength to help someone else with their troubles.

I know nobody really likes to talk about suicide, but well, that's the point, isn't it? I was going through a crisis, and I was on the edge, and I really needed someone to talk to. I called the Crisis Center, and they put someone on the phone to counsel me, at like 4 in the morning. It really made a difference for me to feel like someone actually cared, and was open to listening to me and not judging me, and I will forever appreciate it. If I ever manage to get myself out of this hole I am in, I would love to do something like that for someone else. So thank you.
