The Friendship Line is actually an emergency intervention hotline and a warmline for non-urgent phone calls. Launched in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and approved because of the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis assistance services including:

  • Active committing suicide input
  • Providing mental support
  • Elder punishment avoidance and counselling
  • Offering well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Information and referrals for separated older adults, and adults coping with disabilities

Besides obtaining inbound calls, Friendship Line now offers outreach. We interact with men and women regularly, which help monitor their particular physical and mental health issues. The call-out services behave as an intervention to prevent suicide ultimately by enhancing the lifestyle and connectedness of separated older adults. Any the aging process adult or living with handicaps who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or might be considering death or suicide can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Occasionally the trail to pleasure begins simply by saying hello to someone who legitimately cares.
