ASD is known for taking “life’s most difficult calls.” Due to situations that have occurred in the past, we wanted to do our part to help when a call is answered at ASD from someone who indicates that they are considering taking their own life. ASD created the Suicide Prevention Call Support System to give our operators a way to seamlessly connect with suicide hotline operators 24/7.
