988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline
Finding help when faced with a mental health crisis – for yourself, a loved one, or someone you’re concerned about – gets easier on July 16, 2022, when the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline goes live with a soft launch of the new three-digit 9-8-8 support line. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that calls to 9-8-8 will be roughly twice that of calls currently coming into the Lifeline, and that’s before they actively strive to increase public awareness of 9-8-8 in 2023. In anticipation of increased demand, Lifeline call centers across the nation – including five in Texas – have been pressing to increase their capacity to answer calls and respond to caller’s needs. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is currently in the process of bringing on a back-up Lifeline site to ensure Texas callers can talk with someone from Texas when they reach out for help.
