988- New Suicide Prevention 3-Digit Number

This weekend, The National Suicide Prevention hotline launched a 3-digit number – 988.

“One of the goals of 988 is to ensure that people get the help they need when they need it, where they need it. And so, when a person calls 988, they can expect to have a conversation with a trained, compassionate crisis counselor who will talk with them about what they’re experiencing. If it’s the case that they need further intervention, then likely the crisis counselor will connect with a local mobile crisis team,” Dr. Miriam Delphin-Rittmon, the administrator of SAMHSA, said earlier this month during a call with reporters.

The Bowman Foundation for Workplace Equity and Mental Wellness hopes that this more straightforward way to get help prevents more suicides and that we will continue to find more resources for those who need mental health assistance.
