America is struggling with a mental health crisis, and it'll be easier to call or text for help with a 911-style hotline. In July 2020, the Federal Communications Commission designated 988 as the new emergency service to connect with either the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or Veterans Crisis Line by July 2022. The three digit number 988 goes live tomorrow, and it's needed more than ever. An estimated 11.4 million adults have serious suicidal thoughts, according to a 2022 State of Mental Health Report from Mental Health America. That's up 664,000 from last year’s data. The hotline will provide round-the-clock confidential support from mental health professionals trained to respond to such emergencies.
