When you feel like you’re spiraling down—or if you’ve got a friend or family member who does—the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255) is there to help you through.
The Lifeline is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. It’s a free, confidential hotline available whenever and wherever you need it. Trained counselors provide safe, supportive help 24/7 through the Lifeline’s national network of more than 150 local crisis centers. So, when you call
1-800-273-TALK (8255), your call is sent to a crisis center that’s near you. And, if you want or need referrals for services, those will be near you, too.
If you have a speech or hearing impairment and have TTY equipment, you can reach the Lifeline by calling
The Lifeline also offers a chat service available Monday to Friday from 5 p.m.to 1 a.m. EST.
You matter. Let us help you through.
