American Association of Suicidology logoThe American Association of Suicidology has renewed its accreditation of 2-1-1- Brevard Inc. for five years.
“This outside evaluation assures that callers to our helpline are being served according to nationally recognized standards for crisis and suicide intervention,” said Libby Donoghue, 2-1-1 Brevard executive director.
Almost 350 calls to 2-1-1 Brevard were classified as “suicide/crisis intervention” in the fiscal year that ended June 30.

The goal of AAS, founded in 1968, is “to understand and prevent suicide.” About 120 crisis centers in the U.S. and Canada were accredited by AAS as of June 2013, and the nonprofit 2-1-1 Brevard has been accredited since the late 1980s.
