Since 1971, HeartLine has been providing vital services to the people of Oklahoma. Helping meet a wide-variety of needs of all ages, HeartLine is a key United Way Partner Agency. Over 100 dedicated HeartLine volunteers assist in helping to provide unique services that are free and confidential. HeartLine’s programs include:
2-1-1 provides Oklahomans 24/7 access to information on any type of health or human service, and this easy-to-remember telephone number is the best first place to call to get help or give help.
The CareLine is available 24-hours a day every day of the year offering compassionate listening, crisis intervention, and suicide prevention. 848-2273 (CARE)serves Oklahoma.
All Oklahoma-based calls to 1-800-273-TALK, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, are answered by the expertly-trained call specialists at HeartLine.
HeartLine’s Problem Gambling Helpline is the result of a partnership with the Oklahoma Association for Problem & Compulsive Gambling. The 1-800-522-4700 Problem Gambling Helpline provides problem gamblers and the family members of problem gamblers hope for overcoming addiction and information about treatment.
HeartLine’s Suicide Awareness and Prevention Programs target two separate populations – one that serves youth and one that helps the elderly:
The Healthy Education for Life Program (HELP) teaches youth about the warning signs of depression and suicide and how to get help. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Oklahoma youth ages 10-24. Since 1997, HeartLine has reached more than 36,000 youth, educators, and parents through schools and youth-related community groups.
The Healthy Aging Living Transitions (HALT) Program focuses on suicide awareness and prevention among the elderly – the age group with the highest suicide completion rate per attempts.
