Today, the US Nation Suicide Prevention Lifeline has announced the launch of a new 3-digit number. “Vibrant Emotional Health”, the nonprofit organization that operates the lifeline, launched the new and easier-to-use 3-digit dialing code to make it easier for those in need to reach out for help.
The existing 1-800-273-TALK phone number will remain operational. However, the new 988 dial code supports text messages and phone calls.
CNN has written an excellent article detailing the specifics of the launch here – 988: National Suicide Prevention Lifeline launches new 3-digit number – CNN.
We wish you a healthy and safe weekend from the Align Recovery Centers team in Sonoma!
