Google Quick Link To Toll Free

Google is now directing anyone who inquires about suicide to a toll free phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The information, which will be highlighted by a red phone, will take precedence over all other search results. Dr. Roni Zeiger, chief health strategist for Google, told the New York Times that this is the second time Google has added the guidance link. Earlier this year, the search engine began providing a toll free phone number for the national poison control hotline.
