Project: Call Monitoring of National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Form— NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services has funded a National 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. To ensure quality, the vast majority of crisis centers conduct on-site monitoring of selected calls by supervisors or trainers using unobtrusive listening devices. To monitor the quality of calls and to inform the development of training for networked crisis centers, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline propose to remotely monitor calls routed to seven crisis centers during the shifts of consenting staff. The procedure will be anonymous, in that neither staff nor callers will be identified on the Call Monitoring Form. The monitor, a trained crisis worker, will code the type of problem presented by the caller, the elements of a suicide risk assessment that are completed by the crisis worker, as well as what action plan is developed with and/or what referral(s) are provided to the caller. No centers will be identified in reports. During the shifts of consenting crisis staff, a recording will inform callers that some calls may be monitored for quality assurance purposes. Previous comparisons of matched centers that did and did not play the recording found no difference in hang-up rates before the calls were answered or within the first 15 seconds of the calls.

Seven hundred and twenty callers will be recruited from seven of the approximately 100 crisis hotline centers that participate in the Lifeline network. Trained crisis workers will conduct the follow-up telephone assessment (‘‘Crisis Hotline Telephone Follow up Assessment’’) within one month of the initial call. Assessments will be conducted only one time for each client. Strict measures to ensure confidentiality will be followed. The resulting data will measure (1) suicide risk status at the time of and since the call, (2) depressive symptoms at follow-up, (3) service utilization since the call, (4) barriers to service access, and (5) the clients perception of the efficacy of the hotline intervention.

Project: Call Monitoring of National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Form--
NEW

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's 
(SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services has funded a National 
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.
    To ensure quality, the vast majority of crisis centers conduct on-
site monitoring of selected calls by supervisors or trainers using 
unobtrusive listening devices. To monitor the quality of calls and to 
inform the development of training for networked crisis centers, the 
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline propose to remotely monitor calls 
routed to seven crisis centers during the shifts of consenting staff. 
The procedure will be anonymous, in that neither staff nor callers will 
be identified on the Call Monitoring Form. The monitor, a trained 
crisis worker, will code the type of problem presented by the caller, 
the elements of a suicide risk assessment that are completed by the 
crisis worker, as well as what action plan is developed with and/or 
what referral(s) are provided to the caller. No centers will be 
identified in reports.
    During the shifts of consenting crisis staff, a recording will 
inform callers that some calls may be monitored for quality assurance 
purposes. Previous comparisons of matched centers that did and did not 
play the recording found no difference in hang-up rates before the 
calls were answered or within the first 15 seconds of the calls.
    The seven centers to be monitored will be selected based on the 
geographic region(s) they serve. Once a center has

process and inviting them to participate. The Form also informs workers 
that they are free to participate or not, that they may withdraw their 
acceptance to participate at any time, and that if they choose not to 
participate, no calls during their shift will be monitored.
