(This amendment provides $75,000 from the general fund each year to support the CrisisLink Telephone Hotline program operated by Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services, Inc. to expand texting capabilities as part of a statewide hotline. Youth between the ages of 14-21 have a higher rate of texting as a means of communicating with CrisisLink counselors. Texting requires more conversation time; counselors may speak with four separate people on the phone in the same amount of time it takes to text one person.)
