If you or someone you know is in emotional distress, 988 is a free resource available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:

  • You can call or text 988, or use the online chat at www.988lifeline.org
  • Services are for mental health and substance abuse support.
  • 988 provides someone to talk to and referrals to other services as needed, 24 hours/day.
  • Presently 9-8-8 routes calls to local support centers based on the caller’s area code and not their location in the community.
