In April, 2015, we launched a crisis intervention campaign posted in our stations that was developed in cooperation with area mental health professionals and agencies. The agencies involved are all part of BASCIA (Bay Area Suicide & Crisis Intervention Alliance).
Our hope is that people in crisis might see the signs and choose to call the number for help. The phone number will connect callers with the nearest crisis support services.
If you want to learn more about suicide prevention and how you can help, we suggest you contact one of the BASCIA member agencies. We've listed them below by location:
Contra Costa County
Santa Clara County
San Mateo County
(Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Center)
