Family Life and Mental Health

Domestic Violence, Substance Abuse, and Mental Health Resources


Modeled after 911, 988 is the new three-digit dialing code connecting people to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline) where compassionate, accessible care and support is available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress — whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.  People who call or text the number will be connected to a trained counselor at a crisis center closest to them. You can reach the 988 Suicide and Crisis Line by calling 988, texting 988 or chatting via Lifeline’s website.
