Spread the word about the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline!

988 represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change how crisis services are delivered in the U.S.

The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline launched on July 16, 2022, making it easier for anyone experiencing a mental health, substance use or suicidal crisis to connect with trained crisis counselors at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need these types of crisis supports.

988 is confidential, free and available 24/7/365 for call, text and chat through every land line, cell phone and voice-over internet device in the U.S. 988 call services are available in Spanish and interpretation services are available in over 150 languages.
