Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network, consisting of a single toll-free 
telephone number that routes calls from anywhere in the United States 
to a network of local crisis centers. In turn, the local centers link 
callers to local emergency, mental health, and social service 
resources.
    Through its grantee which is administering the National Suicide 
Prevention Lifeline Network, SAMHSA developed a Call Log and Crisis 
Center Survey in an effort to monitor basic trends in calls received 
and to learn more about the capacities, skills, and unmet needs of the 
crisis centers involved in the Network. The completed Call Logs and 
Surveys will inform the Network's planning around network recruitment 
strategies, technology, training, marketing, and other network resource 
development activities. The goal of these efforts is to enhance 
services provided by networked crisis centers, increase their 
accessibility to people at risk for suicidal behavior, and optimize 
public health efforts to prevent suicide and suicidal behavior.
    All 104 networked crisis centers will be invited to complete the 
Call Logs, which will be available in both Web-based and hardcopy 
formats. Trained crisis counselors will use their judgment as to 
whether to complete the form at the conclusion of individual calls. 
Completing the form entails asking callers several basic questions 
(e.g., zip code, age, how they heard about the Lifeline service). No 
identifiable information will be collected.
    The Web-based Crisis Center Survey, which will be administered only 
one time, requests information about crisis centers' infrastructure and 
services. The Survey includes questions about organizational structure,

training, and quality assurance.
