Embrace has launched Embrace LifeLine, the first Suicide Prevention Helpline in Lebanon and the MENA region. The Helpline campaign “Talking saves lives” (الحكي بطول العمر"”) was launched at Embrace’s fundraising Gala Dinner, held on September 12, 2017 in the presence of hundreds of dignitaries and supporters of the cause. The aim of the campaign is to ignite the conversation around suicide and encourage the Lebanese community to start talking about suicide, break the silence around this societal taboo and send their messages of support to those affected by suicide.

The Embrace LifeLine is a dedicated and specialized telephone service made of highly trained phone operators that provide suicide risk assessment and emotional support to callers, and provide them with referrals for community resources and treatment programs.
