988

988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. This dialing code became available across the United States on July 16, 2022. 

 

When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting callers, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary. 

 

Following the launch of 988, the previous Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) shall remain available to people in distress or suicidal crisis.
