988 Suicide and crisis lifeline information

The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline provides 24/7 free and confidential support for people who are thinking about suicide, who are in a mental health or substance abuse crisis, who are having emotional distress, or someone who is concerned about a loved one.

When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary.

To reach the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, call or text 988, or chat at 988lifeline.org.
