If you or someone you know needs help Call2Talk is here to listen.
As of July 16th, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), is transitioning to a three digit number, 988.
988 is intended to create an easy to remember and easier way to improve access to emotional support and suicide prevention services. As a member of the NSPL Network, Call2Talk will be answering calls going to this line. Moving to 988 does not mean our current local numbers will go away.
You can still call us 24/7. We're here to listen.

Besides its primary function as a helpline, Call2Talk also provides the following:
A phone check-in service for elder adults operated in partnership with BayPath Elder Services and Advocates, Inc. Trained call-takers contact seniors weekly to provide support and friendly conversation following sudden life changes.
The MetroWest LOSSteam works with area police departments to offer immediate on-site peer emotional support to suicide loss survivors. (in Ashland, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Sherborn, and Sudbury)
Call2Talk offers best practice awareness trainings for community members and agencies including: Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) Training, Mental Health First Aid, safeTalk and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).
Call2Talk, with support from the MetroWest Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention, has formed a library dedicated to bereavement, loss, grief, hope and renewal. It is the intention that this lending library will be a source of comfort to those who are bereaved as well as a support to students who are involved in this area of study.
This project is dedicated in loving memory of our dear friend Cantor Jodi M. Schechtman who sadly lost her courageous battle with ovarian cancer in 2021. As part of her duties as clergy, Cantor Schechtman was there to support hundreds of families through their journeys of grief and loss and always instilled hope and enlightenment to anyone who crossed her path.
