Who’s Involved in this Collective Work?
|The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is leading this coordinated effort to connect youth with mental health resources and supports that are critically needed.
The District Attorney’s Office has launched a “Summer Life Line” mental health crisis hotline, which connects youth facing mental health challenges to licensed mental health professionals from the office’s Youth Diversion Program.
“Our Life Line is a unique program for a district attorney’s office, but I envision our role in the community in a much broader sense. Our community is facing a mental health crisis, and my office has access to mental health resources to be able to help those in need. We are not just here to prosecute crime; we are here to make a difference. I want our communities to be safer for everyone, and I want everyone to know they are not alone. Our Life Line can help do just that.”
