CONTACT is a Student Volunteers Council service project and one of the College Branches of CONTACT of Mercer County. CONTACT of Mercer County is a local emotional health, crisis intervention, and suicide prevention hotline connected to the International Council for Helplines (formerly CONTACT USA). Volunteers answer phone calls from the local CONTACT hotline and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. They also answer chats through CrisisChat.

After the completion of training, volunteers are free to take shifts whenever they have availability.
