Organized in 1969, the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas (SCCenter) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit suicide and crisis prevention center located in Dallas, Texas. Our mission: "Helping those in crisis, especially suicidal crisis, find hope for the future."?
We strive to identify warning signs of suicidal behavior, facilitate the return to a pre-crisis state, enhance growth through effective problem solving and ultimately prevent self-destructive behavior.
SCCenter accomplishes its overall mission with 1) 24/7 crisis counseling through our Crisis Line; 2) Awareness training and mental health checkups with our "Teens Can Survive"? program; and 3) Grief support with our Survivors of Suicide* grief support program. (*A survivor of suicide, in this sense, is described as an individual who has lost a loved one to suicide ~ a suicide loss survivor.) Since 1996, we have also provided suicide and crisis intervention training to North Texas Police Department and SWAT Teams.
