988 Suicide & Crisi Lifeline

988 Suicide & Crisi Lifeline

On July 16, 2022, 9-8-8 will become the nationwide 3-digit dialing code for crisis and suicide prevention, replacing the 1-800 number currently used by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. When dialed, 9-8-8 connects the caller with the crisis/suicide prevention system. This will allow anyone in the U.S. to call 9-8-8 and get help designed specifically for someone dealing with a mental health crisis.
 
Recently the New Jersey Department of Human Services hosted a webinar with a PowerPoint presentation that you can review. Questions can be sent via email to 988Questions@dhs.nj.gov.
 
This direct connection to accessible and compassionate support and resources will be open to anyone experiencing emotional distress or those worried about a loved one. We encourage you to share this information with your Municipal Manager and Health Officer.
