“Our Teen TalkLine is an important component of what we do at Hopeline,” said Courtney Worthen, executive director of HopeLine. “We wanted to offer this contest specifically to teens so it would feel like something that was created by teens, for teens. HopeLine was founded on the principle of suicide prevention, and we hope this brings recognition to National Suicide Prevention Week and those who have lost their lives in such a tragic way.”
HopeLine’s Teen TalkLine was created in 1993 to offer teens an opportunity to talk to trained volunteers about important issues in their lives 24 hours a day. The teen crisis line is a free community program of HopeLine, Inc. targeted to Triangle residents, although it also accepts calls from outside the area.
Submissions for the Teen TalkLine logo contest should be emailed to courtneyw@hopeline-
