In December 2019 and through a two-year capacity-building grant offered by Vibrant Emotional Health and in partnership with the South Carolina Department of Mental Health, Mental Health America of Greenville County (MHAGC) began serving the entire state of South Carolina with National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

This funding was designed to enhance in-state answer rates of the selected states and ended in September 2021.
