New National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline Toolkit Available

Published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), this toolkit helps government agencies promote the new National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline Number, 988. SAMHSA recognizes the need for governments, states, territories, tribes, crisis centers, and partners to speak with one voice to ensure that there is a clear understanding about what 988 is and how it will work. They encourage you to use these communication outreach materials and build on them with your community coalitions to meet the needs of your specific audiences.
