On July 16, 2022, a three-digit, national mental health crisis hotline (mandated by the federal government in October 2020) will launch nationwide. When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network. The expansion of the current National Suicide Prevention Lifeline program to effectively triage, respond, and stabilize individuals experiencing a mental health crisis will require significant workforce expansion and training. This session invites regional 988 implementers to share opportunities and challenges during this transition.
