    Toolkit for Counties: 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

    The nationwide transition to 988 on July 16, 2022 provides an easier way for people experiencing mental distress to access the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. This number will connect callers to trained counselors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via text, chat or phone to de-escalate and triage the behavioral health emergency. Counties play an important role in providing a robust behavioral health care continuum so counselors can provide referrals and people have access to the critical support necessary for recovery and prevention. This page features resources to help county leaders support the 988 transition and leverage this opportunity to expand access to behavioral health care for all community members.
