United Way seeks help to revive hot line


The United Way of Tri-County recently announced that it will reinstitute its mental health and suicide-prevention hot line, which shut down several months ago for financial reasons. The program previously served an average of 50,000 calls annually, officials said in a statement on new program, dubbed “Call2Talk.“ It will operate around the clock, and the regional United Way organization is working toward having it accredited by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Network. However, organization officials said, donations are still needed to get the program up and running. Checks to support the hot line can be mailed to the United Way of Tri-County, 46 Park St., Framingham, MA 01702, with Call2Talk on the memo line, or donations can be made through its website, www.uwotc.org .
