988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

In 2020, Congress designated the new 988 phone number to exist as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The leading federal agency, SAMHSA, along with the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Veterans Affairs recently launched the easy-to-remember number to provide support for people experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis.

The Lifeline is a national network consisting of over 200 local, dependent, and state-funded crisis agencies.
