If you or someone you know may be feeling lonely, afraid, anxious, lost, or overwhelmed, you are not alone. These emotions are normal, and there is no shame in feeling this way.

988 is for anyone experiencing a mental health crisis, substance use, or thoughts of suicide. A qualified and trained crisis counselor is ready to assist you. It is private and is accessible 24/7. In a crisis, dial 988.

In 2022, more than 49,440 individuals died by suicide. We must continue to connect, communicate, and work together to decrease suicide and increase mental health wellness for ourselves and our loved ones. We must share resources and ensure those we love know who to call.
