You might be interested to know that SETH is not an acronym but the name of a real person, Seth Stambaugh. Seth was a “consumer” of mental health services who, in pursuit of his recovery, developed and relied on a supportive network of telephone friends. Joined by his loving family, they provided the caring, concern and support that most of us, whether diagnosed or not, seek in our everyday lives. In fact, Seth’s life was sustained by his safety net of friends.
Seth’s mental illness was recognized early in his life. It challenged him and his family, but it did not break a spirit that was described by all who knew him as enthusiastic and loving. Sadly, physical health conditions resulted in Seth’s untimely death. At his passing, family and friends alike remembered the good and the joy that Seth brought to their lives and vowed that his memory will have meaning.
Our SETH Line warm line fulfills their commitment. With the caring and compassion of our network of volunteers, Seth’s legacy of telephone support lives on. The SETH line provides a resource to consumers and to others for whom a friendly and non-judgmental listener meets a need. The SETH line also gives consumer volunteers the opportunity to provide meaningful service to others. Quality of life is measured as much by what we give as what we may receive.
What is the SETH Line? How does it work?
