Getting Help

If you need immediate crisis response, dial 988 —it’s a direct connection to compassionate, accessible care and support for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress – whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

The 988 dialing code is the first step toward strengthening and transforming crisis care in the USA. It serves as a universal entry point so that no matter where you live, you can reach a trained crisis counselor who can help.
