  • New 988 Three-Digit National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Number

    988 is the new, three-digit number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) available nationwide. This number serves as a direct connection to caring support for anyone in mental health distress. This may include thoughts of suicide, substance use crisis and/or emotional distress. 988 is a free service available to any and everyone. By contacting 988 by chat, text or phone, individuals will be connected to a trained crisis counselor. Interpretation services are available in over 150 languages.
