Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services Via Avanta
Pacoima, CA. 91331
We're part of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's Network and are one of only two Lifeline members offering 24/7 Spanish coverage. One of just three Lifeline members selected for the national Disaster Distress Helpline, we managed thousands of calls during last year's hurricanes, wildfires and other disasters.We provide support for businesses, schools and those left behind. We deliver a full range of services to people affected by suicide, not only to individuals contemplating suicide, but to concerned loved ones and those who have attempted or are grieving a loss.We are innovators in suicide prevention. We pioneered a bereavement support group model that is used around the world, and developed a treatment model for people who have attempted suicide that we have shared with mental health providers in every state and 30 countries.We train others to recognize and respond to the warning signs of suicide. Last year we trained or educated more than 16 000 people about suicide. Among them were mental health professionals, police officers, FBI agents, teachers and students. We also educated hundreds of community organizations, businesses, and faith-based groups in suicide prevention.
