988, the mental health crisis version of 911, will go into effect Saturday, July 16, 2022.
In 2020, Congress came together to institute a similar phone line as 911 specifically for those in a suicidal or mental health crisis. Beginning July 16, 2022 call, text, or chat 988 and you will be directly connected to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline where you can talk to a trained mental health crisis worker whether you or you or someone else are having thoughts of suicide or is in a mental health emergency situation.
