Finally, in the US, we have a 3 digit number for the Suicide Prevention Hotline. It’s 988. This has been slow coming. Why, I don’t know. But thank God that it’s finally here!
If you or someone you know is thinking of suicide, you can now use the 3 digit number to reach a professional that will assist you in getting the help you need. The old # 1 (800)-273-8255, is still available. But the new number will be so much easier to remember!
In the UK, if you’re struggling with negative thoughts or suicidal feelings, you can call the Samaritans at 116 123; and in Australia, call Lifeline at 13 11 14.
THIS is a wonderful article about several crisis hotlines and texting that is available to a number of different people.
