National three-digit suicide and mental health crisis hotline 988 begins Saturday


Des Moines Register: Iowans experiencing a mental health crisis will soon have a faster way to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. On Saturday, Iowa will join states across the country rolling out a three-digit number — 988 — that people can call or text to reach a trained counselor who can help them deal with suicidal thoughts and mental health crises. The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act of 2020 received approval from Congress after advocates pushed to shorten the suicide prevention line’s 10-digit number.
