U.S. rolls out new mental health hotline

WEBSITE 988

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, can be more easily reached by calling or texting 988, or chatting on 988lifeline.org.

988 serves as a universal entry point so that no matter where you live in the U.S., you can easily access 24/7 emotional support. You do not have to be suicidal to reach out. Their trained crisis counselors can help you through whatever mental health challenges you are experiencing.

The previous Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.

The Lifeline’s network of over 200 crisis centers has been in operation since 2005 and has been proven to be effective. It’s the counselors at these local crisis centers who answer the contacts the Lifeline receives every day. Numerous studies have shown that callers feel less suicidal, less depressed, less overwhelmed, and more hopeful after speaking with a Lifeline counselor.

La Línea Nacional de Prevención del Suicidio, ahora conocida como 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, puede ser contactada más fácilmente llamando o enviando un mensaje de texto al 988, o chateando en 988lifeline.org.

988 sirve como un punto de entrada universal para que, sin importar dónde viva en los Estados Unidos, pueda acceder fácilmente a apoyo emocional las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana. Sus consejeros de crisis capacitados pueden ayudarlo a superar cualquier desafío de salud mental que esté experimentando.

El número de teléfono anterior de Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) siempre estará disponible para las personas con angustia emocional o crisis suicida.

La red de Lifeline de más de 200 centros de crisis ha estado en funcionamiento desde 2005 y ha demostrado ser eficaz. Son los consejeros de estos centros locales de crisis quienes responden a los contactos que recibe Lifeline todos los días. Numerosos estudios han demostrado que las personas que llaman se sienten menos suicidas, menos deprimidas, menos abrumadas y más esperanzadas después de hablar con un consejero de Lifeline.
