US residents will soon be able to call 9-8-8 for help in a mental health emergency, just as 9-1-1 connects people in need to first-responders for other emergencies.
Counselors answered 2.2 million calls last year through the National Suicide Prevention crisis center. The current suicide prevention number is 800-273-TALK (8255).
The FCC has approved a new three-digit number for suicide prevention.
