The new 988 suicide prevention hotline is set to go live nationwide

Summary by Ground News
Beginning Saturday, any American experiencing a mental health crisis can call or text 988, the new National Suicide Prevention Hotline that’s been years in the making. The federal government has invested millions of dollars in preparation for 988’s launch and is relying on states to help make the new service a success. Over 200 locally operated and funded crisis centers across the country will begin operating 24/7, responding to 988 calls and text messages in an attempt to reimagine crisis response in the U.S. Callers will first be routed to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and then connected to a local crisis counselor where they can receive counseling, resources and referrals.
