I hope you’ll help me spread awareness of the new 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. This will save lives! The former National Suicide Prevention Hotline was highly effective. But the new “988” number will be so much easier to remember and to use:
988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
This number became available to everyone across the United States starting on July 16, 2022.
