988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is Officially Live

In 2020, Congress designated the new 988 dialing code to be operated through the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The line is now LIVE and the resources are designed to help states, mental health and substance use disorder professionals, and others looking for information on understanding funding opportunities and implementation resources for strengthening suicide prevention and mental health crisis services.
