SAMHSA is accepting applications for Suicide Prevention Lifeline Crisis Center Follow-Up Expansion Grant Program (Crisis Center Follow-Up Expansion). The purpose of this program is to provide an integrated hub that:
Ensures systematic follow-up of suicidal persons who contact an NSPL Crisis Center.
Provides enhanced coordination of crisis stabilization, crisis respite, and hospital emergency department services.
Enhances coordination with mobile on-site crisis response.
In effect, with the resources provided, the hub should not lose track of a person in a suicidal crisis as they interface with crisis systems. It is expected that this program will promote continuity of care to safeguard the well-being of individuals who are at risk of suicide.
SAMHSA plans to issue 2 grants of up to $336,192 per year for up to 3 years.
