When you call, text or chat using the 988 Lifeline, you’re connected to trained counselors that are part of the 988 Lifeline network, made up of more than 200 local crisis centers. Counselors are trained to provide emotional support and crisis counseling to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.
The 988 Lifeline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, across the United States.
