In 2006, Dial Help enters its 35th consecutive year of service. Dial Help provides confidential walk-in and telephone crisis intervention 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Last year we responded to 29,412 requests for assistance across the entire Upper Peninsula. Issues addressed include relationship problems, parenting assistance, suicide, bereavement, substance abuse, and other stressful situations. Dial Help also works to prevent sexual assault and substance abuse by educating children about protective factors that build self-esteem and positive decision-making skills. Last year our prevention programs served elementary and high school youth in Baraga, Houghton, Keweenaw, and Ontonagon counties.
