It's 3 pm in 1976 and a 15-year-old girl is thinking about running away from home. It's midnight in 2015 and a depressed older man is contemplating suicide. Who did they both call? 2-1-1.
2-1-1 is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. It is the celebration of a great concept - a unique help-by-telephone service made available for free to Connecticut residents, year-round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
