Sunday Note – 988: A new national suicide prevention and crisis Lifeline

I hope you’ll help me spread awareness of the new 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. This will save lives! The former National Suicide Prevention Hotline was highly effective. But the new “988” number will be so much easier to remember and to use:

Using information from 988lifeline.org, Epocrates has created a free poster for you to download, print, and post:

988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

This number became available to everyone across the United States starting on July 16, 2022.
