Are you or someone you Know struggling with a mental health crisis?
The new 988 hotline seeks to serve as a free, private crisis line and suicide prevention hotline for those going through any kind of mental suffering. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's previous 1-800 number had eleven digits. By switching to a three-digit code, it is hoped that persons seeking help for mental health emergency will do so on a regular basis and without stigma. Calling 988 may become automatic when a mental health emergency arises, much as dialing 911 when you smell smoke. You can get immediate assistance by calling, texting, or chatting online. https://988lifeline.org/talk-to-someone-now/
