SAMHSA: 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline
"The resources and information on SAMHSA's 988 page are designed to help states, territories, tribes, mental health and substances disorder professionals, and others looking for information on understanding the background, history, funding opportunities, and implementation resources for strengthening prevention and mental health crisis services. 988 goes live on all devices on July 16, 2022."
A note from our HHS Region 8 leadership on the new 988 website:
“The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) rolled out a new 988 website designed to serve as your one-stop-shop for 988 resources from SAMHSA. The site contains a 988 partner toolkit which includes materials designed to cover the basics of 988 and provide a strong foundation from which partners can build for their audience-specific needs. 988 – the easy-to-remember 3-digit code providing access to life-saving services- is going live on all devices on July 16, 2022. Visit the website for key messages, FAQs, and Fact Sheet to facilitate partner efforts and communication planning.”
