In Crisis – Call Someone

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, across the United States. The Lifeline is comprised of a national network of over 160 local crisis centers, combining custom local care and resources with national standards and best practices.

Lifeline services are available in English (988), for Spanish language speakers (1-888-628-9454), and for individuals who may be deaf or hard of hearing (1-800-799-4889).

You can also text “MHA” to 741-741 to reach the Crisis Text Line. Warmlines are an excellent place for non-crisis support.
