Proposed Project: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline—Call Log—NEW The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA), Center for Mental Health Services funds a National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network, a system of toll-free telephone numbers that routes calls from anywhere in the United States to a network of more than 125 certified crisis centers that can link callers to local emergency, mental health, and social service resources.

Total .............................................. Responses per respondent 2 100 Total responses technology permits calls to be directed immediately to a suicide prevention worker who is geographically closest to the caller. Through its grantee which is administering the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network, SAMHSA developed a Call Log in an effort to monitor basic trends in calls received. The completed Call Logs will inform the Network’s planning around enhancing services provided by networked crisis centers and training provided to crisis counselors; increasing Lifeline’s accessibility to people at risk for suicidal behavior; and optimizing public health efforts to prevent suicide and suicidal behavior. All 125 networked crisis centers will be invited to complete the Call Logs. Crisis centers that are already collecting all or most of the information on the Call Log will have the option of extracting compatible data from their own software systems and reporting on a monthly basis. All other crisis centers will have the option of completing the Call Log in either a Web-based or hardcopy format. Trained crisis counselors will be able to complete the majority of Log items during the course of the call, without asking the caller specific questions. They may also choose to fill out the form at the conclusion of individual calls. Completing the form entails asking callers a few basic questions (e.g., age; race; ethnicity; whether they ever served in the U.S. military; how they heard about the Lifeline service). No identifiable information will be collected.

\1\ Estimates based on 444,000 calls annually.
\2\ 100 (80%) of the networked crisis centers currently collect this data electronically (automated crisis centers or ACCs). An IT worker would need to
  extract, reformat, and upload those records monthly.

[[Page 14826]]

 
\3\ 25 (20%) of the networked crisis centers do not currently collect this data (non-automated crisis centers or NCCs) and counselors would therefore
  need to ask Callers questions from the Call Log. A 30% response rate is anticipated. 444,000 total annual calls x (20% of the centers) = 88,800 annual
  calls answered by NCCs x (30% response rate) = 26,640 Call Logs completed by NCCs.
\4\ Estimate based on crisis centers' average staffing level of 30 counselors, 50% (15) of whom are volunteer. 25 non-automated centers x 15 volunteer
  counselors = 375 volunteer counselors.
\5\ Estimate assumes that incoming calls will be equally divided among volunteer and paid counselors. 26,640 calls / 750 total counselors = 36 calls per
  counselor.
