National 9-8-8 mental health crisis line established

September 1, 2022

Individuals know to call 911 for emergencies, and now they can call 988 to speak with trained specialists for mental health crisis intervention and suicide prevention. The 988 phone code is faster than a 10-digit number to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), which makes follow-up referrals to local behavioral health agencies like CAHS.
