Promote the 988 Crisis Lifeline
988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline), and is now active across the United States.
When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary.
You can help promote awareness of the Lifeline by downloading, printing, and posting a poster in the community.
Help Get 988 On Electronic Signs
Contact your local schools, businesses, and churches to put a message on their electronic signs this summer. (Message: “988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline – Call. Text. Chat.”)
Thank you for your help and support to get word out about the new 988 crisis hotline!
