Mashable: 988 hotline launches with a simple number for getting help during a mental health crisis . “The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, which will be live nationwide on July 16, is being billed as an alternative to calling 911 for mental health emergencies like suicidal thinking or behavior, trauma, substance misuse, and psychosis. When someone contacts the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, they will reach a trained crisis counselor who can discuss what’s happening and, if necessary, connect them to local mental health resources and support.”
