Mental health is a huge hurdle that many people struggle to surmount each and every day. Issues like sobriety and figuring out how to handle mental health crises can be an extra layer of stress. For years, the suicide prevention hotline has been a long, complicated, and easy-to-forget number that makes it difficult for those in true crisis to connect with someone who can help. The new hotline number is easy to dial, with only three numbers, 9-8-8 and is set to help millions.

Why the Change?
The original suicide prevention line number was 1-800, which was long and often difficult for those in crisis to call and utilize before they took steps to end their lives. In recent years the hotline, which was originally manned by mental health professionals, has expanded to include texting. Texting is a bit more anonymous than the already anonymous hotline and allows those struggling to talk via text message if they are not comfortable talking to someone.
With the new phone number, it is easier to remember. It will offer an immediate means of talking to a professional to help you through your crisis both in an immediate fashion and in terms of finding help after the fact. The new shorter, easier-to-remember number is ideal for those in crisis mode who need help quickly.
