988 Suicide & Crisis Hotline

StartingJuly 16, the 10-digit National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number will change to a three-digit version for calls and texts: 988.


The 988 Suicide Crisis Lifeline is coming to our areas. And there is tremendous need, given:

  • In 2020, the U.S. had one death by suicide every 11 minutes.
  • For people ages 1034, suicide is a leading cause of death.
  • From April 2020 through April 2021, over 100,000 people died from drug overdoses.
