Watsonville Suicide Prevention Counseling & Hotline For Adults & Youth Expanded

For Watsonville residents, Family Service Agency of the Central Coast (FSA-CC) (831-423-9444) has expanded to offer various suicide prevention and support services for at-risk adults and youth, as well as their families and friends.

With its expanded services, the organization hopes to provide crucial support for Watsonville residents struggling with suicidal ideation or any other symptoms that may be connected to suicide risk. As FSA-CC explains, it is important that individuals be able to identify such warning signs in themselves or their loved ones. Among the notable warning signs listed on the website are increased anxiety and/or depression, changes in mood, sleep patterns, or eating habits, general hopelessness, and increased drug or alcohol use.

A key part of FSA-CC's suicide prevention and support services is its 24-hour suicide crisis hotline. Anyone who feels they or someone they know is at risk for suicide can call the organization's suicide crisis line to speak with a trained professional. This is a multilingual hotline aimed at providing compassionate support to all callers and de-escalating situations that could result in suicide.

FSA-CC also offers a suicide loss survivor program for individuals and families who have lost loved ones to suicide. With this support group, FSA-CC strives to help attendants navigate feelings of isolation, sadness, anger, and grief and to teach them healthy coping skills. Residents of Watsonville and surrounding communities can attend the suicide loss survivor program for either in-person or virtual meeting sessions.
