988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

If you or someone you know is struggling and needs support, call or text 988 or chat 

988 serves as a universal entry point so that no matter where you live in the United States, you can reach a trained crisis counselor who can help.

988 offers 24/7 access to trained crisis counselors who can help people experiencing mental health-related distress. That could be:

  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Mental health or substance use crisis, or
  • Any other kind of emotional distress

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline has recently added Spanish text and chat services, connecting those in need with Spanish-speaking trained crisis counselors. The Lifeline also provides translation services in over 240 languages and plans.
