From a statistical standpoint for FirstLink, we had an amazing last year, which coincides with the amazing year we have had with in our other areas. In 2011, we took almost 40,000 calls, which is 10,000 more than in 2007. So, in four short years our calls have significantly increased. In that same period of time, the number of suicide calls that FirstLink has taken have tripled.
Some other statistics that may be of interest:
- There was at least 1 call taken from every county in ND.
- Information and referral calls totaled more than 50% of the total calls
Thank you to all of our supporters that made this work possible!
