Bellmore, NYApril 25th, 2013 – Did you know that the Spring and the Summer are the seasons for the highest rate of suicide and suicide attempts - and not the Winter Holiday season?  This season, you can help make a difference in someone’s life by becoming a volunteer at Long Island Crisis Center.  The Crisis Center, the 24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline, is currently recruiting volunteers to participate in its upcoming Counselor Assistant Training Program.  No experience is necessary and the hours are flexible (around-the-clock) to accommodate the individual needs of volunteers. 

The free, comprehensive orientation training program takes place over 3 three-hour sessions at the Crisis Center’s office in Bellmore.  May’s training will be held on 3 successive Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on May 9th, 16th and 23rd.  June’s training will be held on 3 successive Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  For more information, check out the website, and click on “Volunteer;” then call 516-826-0244 to schedule an interview.
