The Listeners: A documentary about crisis helplines

Listeners Still 9

The Listeners” is a new documentary that follows a group of new volunteers as they go through the challenging and vigorous process of training to take calls at Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence, Kansas. Check out the trailer below.

If you’re wondering where you can see the film, click here to see if there’s a screening already scheduled in your area. No screening nearby? No worries — it’s super easy to host a screening at your local theater or organize a showing at a campus or community center.

The film has been endorsed by the Lifeline, and hosting a screening locally provides a great opportunity for raising awareness of your helpline and fundraising, too.

I’ll be going to my local screening in Maryland on October 4th and Christa is going to her local screening in Baton Rouge later in October. We’ll be sure to post our thoughts and reviews — in the meantime go to The Listeners website to learn more about the film, and how to host a screening near you.


Dana joined the iCarol team in 2013 after 12 years of direct service and administrative duties in the Helpline Industry. You'll find her presenting Webinars, Tweeting, Blogging, Facebooking, and producing other materials to help others learn more about iCarol.
