Meeting the Community's Needs


By responding to emerging needs in the community, Long Island Crisis Center works towards it mission of “supporting and empowering Long Islanders at critical times in their lives”:

•Addressing Suicide Among Veterans
It is being reported that 22 veterans a day die by suicide. The Long Island Veterans Initiative is a newly-formed clearinghouse for both mental health and general living services for veterans. As one of its partners, the Crisis Center is the Initiative’s 24/7 resource for veterans who are in crisis and need to speak to someone immediately.

•Overcoming “Later Life Issues”
While senior citizens (65+) constitute 12.5% of the country’s population, they account for 14.5% of all suicides in the country. Introduced this year, under the auspices of Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray, the Crisis Center debuted a workshop at senior citizen centers that focuses on areas that are unique to this age group. Medical issues, grieving the loss of a love one, isolation, depression are just a few of the topics as well as coping methods and the availability of the Crisis Center's 24/7 hotline.
