BOISE, Idaho — The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (ISPH) is looking for good listeners. Due to an increase in crisis calls, ISPH needs more trained volunteers in the Boise area.
Officials with the 24-hour hotline say they need more volunteers around the clock. They are hoping to train dozens of volunteers this time around.
Volunteers do have to be 18 or older to help out and training sessions run through February. For more information and to apply to volunteer, click here.
