THE NATIONAL FRIENDSHIP LINE, 1-800-971-0016, is a phone number for seniors (60 years of age and older) who can call once a day, every day, if they would like social interaction or ask health questions. They can even request a volunteer to make an outgoing call directly to a loved one who might be in need but is reluctant to reach out.  Trained volunteers are available to take the calls and each year they make and/or receive 100,000 phone calls with seniors.  The Friendship Line is sponsored by the Institute of Aging (IOA).  This service is free. 

THE NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION HOTLINE, 1-800-273-8255, provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.
