988 Suicide & Crisi Lifeline

988 Suicide & Crisi Lifeline

On July 16, 2022, 9-8-8 will become the nationwide 3-digit dialing code for crisis and suicide prevention, replacing the 1-800 number currently used by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. When dialed, 9-8-8 connects the caller with the crisis/suicide prevention system. This will allow anyone in the U.S. to call 9-8-8 and get help designed specifically for someone dealing with a mental health crisis.
Recently the New Jersey Department of Human Services hosted a webinar with a PowerPoint presentation that you can review. Questions can be sent via email to
This direct connection to accessible and compassionate support and resources will be open to anyone experiencing emotional distress or those worried about a loved one. We encourage you to share this information with your Municipal Manager and Health Officer.
