Suicide Prevention Lifeline can now be reached by dialing 988

Effective July 16, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached by dialing 988. Until then, those in crisis should continue to use 1-800-273-8255, which will continue to function even after the transition.

The Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a free, confidential service and available 24/7/365, connecting those experiencing a mental health, substance use, or suicidal crisis with trained crisis counselors. It is available in Spanish, along with interpretation services in over 150 languages.

Access to 988 is available through every land line, cell phone, and voice-over internet device in the United States. The nationwide transition to 988 as a three-digit call, text, and chat line is just the first important step in reimagining crisis support in the U.S.
