The ongoing conflict in Israel has heightened the demand for mental health support, and 211 Broward extends its sincere thoughts to all those impacted by recent global events. Continuing regular activities during these trying times may be challenging, and the community may require time to mourn. The main objective of 211 Broward is to offer a round-the-clock, all-inclusive helpline and support services to people and families residing in the Broward County region who need crisis intervention assistance or information and connections to health and human services. Each call to 211 is attended by a competent, qualified counselor who listens to the caller’s issues, assesses their requirements, and links them with relevant agencies and programs to assist them.
In addition, 211 Broward has been a partner of the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline for over ten years and is responsible for answering all 988 suicide hotline calls originating in Broward County.
