988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline
988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the new Suicide & Crisis Lifeline which is now active throughout the U.S.
When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors who will listen, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary for any mental health emergency.
Loved ones can also call 988 for support in helping a person in need. If you or someone you love are thinking of ending your life, please know you are not alone. Help is out there.
