Election Results Prompt Unexpected Flood Of Calls To Crisis And Suicide Prevention Services

CNN (11/11, Ravitz) reported that last Tuesday’s election results have resulted in an “unexpected flood of calls to crisis and suicide prevention services.”

The Christian Science Monitor (11/13, Hoover) reported, “Following Mr. Trump’s victory, services like the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, the Crisis Text Line, and the Trevor Project, which focuses on helping LGBTQ youth, fielded hundreds or thousands of inquiries from Americans who feared they might lose health care and civil rights under a Trump administration, or” encounter “additional harassment from a sect of his increasingly vocal and radical supporters.”
