BOISE, Idaho — Editor's note: An earlier version of this story included incorrect information about which number to press. KTVB has since verified that the proper selection is "2" after dialing 2-1-1.
When in crisis and looking for help the last thing you likely want to have to do is remember a 10-digit phone number.
So the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline has partnered with 2-1-1 -- Idaho's Careline -- to offer a three-digit suicide prevention hotline.
All you have to do is dial 2-1-1, then press 2 when prompted.
You'll be connected to the suicide prevention hotline.
Officials say 2-1-1 operators have been trained to better recognize suicide warning signs in callers and offer what they're calling a "warm transfer" to the hotline if needed.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please reach out to the suicide prevention hotline, either through 2-1-1 or by directly calling or texting the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline at 208-398-4357.
All calls are anonymous and confidential.
