What To Do in a Mental Health Crisis

Are you or someone you love having a mental health emergency? Dial 988.

988 is a new, shorter phone number to make it easier for people to remember and access mental health crisis services.

(Please note, the previous 1-800-273-TALK (8255) number will continue to function indefinitely.)
