988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline
Need support now? If you or someone you know is struggling or in crisis, help is available - call or text 988 or chat 988lifeline.org.
People who call or text the 988 number are connected to a trained counselor at a crisis center closest to them. If a local crisis center is too busy to respond right away, the call gets routed to one of 16 backup centers around the country.
