Help Is Available For Those Experiencing Mental Health Crisis
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration (SAMHSA) is the lead federal agency,
in partnership with the Federal Communications
Commission and the Department of Veterans Affairs,
working to make the promise of 988 a reality for America.
Moving to a 3-digit dialing code is a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to strengthen and expand the existing
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (the Lifeline).
Of course, 988 is more than just an easy-to-remember
number—it is a direct connection to compassionate,
accessible care and support for anyone experiencing
mental health related distress – whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. Preparing for full 988 implementation requires a bold vision for a crisis care system that provides direct, life-saving services to all in need.
