Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas

A nonprofit organization

Our overall goal is to prevent suicide in North Texas communities. We do so with our 24/7 Suicide and Crisis Line, our Teens Can Survive Program and with our Suicide Loss Survivors Program (long-term and short-term grief support for those who have lost a loved one to suicide). Research tells us that anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide is more at-risk for suicide, themselves. Our services are provided free-of-charge to the North Texas community.

Our Needs

Operating support is our greatest funding need at this time. We also need extraordinary volunteers for our North Texas Crisis Lifeline. Please help us stop suicide in North Texas.


Helping those in crisis, especially suicidal crisis, find hope for the future.

Equity Statement

In past decades, and when we began our work in the 1960s, suicide was primarily viewed as a White, older male issue. But over time, suicide has continued to rise among teens. Suicide attempts as well as suicides have risen exponentially during the pandemic. Our Board of Directors is actively seeking Hispanic representation.. We currently have two African-American representatives and one Asian-American serving on our Board of Directors.

We encourage racial equity within our organization.

The Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas (SCCenter) currently has six African-American and three Asian-American staff members. The schools we are collaborating with in Dallas are majority minority and it continues to be critical that we represent this diversity when we work closely with counselors, students and parents in North Texas.
