Blue October – PUTP Tour
Since the suicide of his wife Kristin in April 1998, KBHC Founder Reese Butler has been on a personal crusade. His mission the past 11 years has been to offer HOPE and the option to LIVE to those in the deepest emotional pain. While the idea of a suicide hotline is not a new one, the challenge of creating a national network in the USA under a single, easy-to-remember, toll-free telephone was a daunting task.
People in crisis generally don’t have the energy or ability to take on a long search for help. When those looking for support dial 1.800.SUICIDE they are seamlessly connected to a certified crisis center nearest to their calling location. While it’s seemingly a simple concept, behind the scenes there are significant infrastructures working to provide help within 20 to 30 seconds of a call being placed.
Support from across the country helps KBHC achieve its mission to prevent suicide and educate people about depressive disorders.
