Beverly Hills High School student Sam Halfon is one of a handful of students that are volunteers for Teen Line, a peer-to-peer suicide prevention hotline based at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, which will be raising money 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Sept. 8 during this year’s Call-a-Thon in honor of National Suicide Prevention Week.

Teen Line is one of the oldest suicide hotlines in the country. Founded in 1980, it is unique in that it is a non-profit, peer-to-peer suicide prevention hotline.
