1564 is Lebanon's first suicide prevention helpline!

Embrace is an NGO that aims to raise awareness about mental health in Lebanon. It launched Lebanon's first suicide prevention helpline which is 1564!

Embrace is here to prevent suicide by helping those who are going through a crisis. In fact, every 2.5 days someone dies of suicide in Lebanon. For that reason, the NGO established a call center that is ready to listen and to help those who have suicidal thoughts.

Located in Beirut, Embrace Lifeline has 44 volunteers who work in different areas of the NGO. In fact, they underwent a specialized and intensive 40-hour training which includes active listening and suicide risk assessment.

If you are not feeling emotionally well and you're not sure how to deal with it, call 1564.

Remember these four digits; they can save lives!
