National Suicide Prevention Lifelife
The Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK) is a confidential, toll-free, 24-hour crisis line available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. It was launched in 2005 by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Mental Health Association of New York City. The Lifeline’s network of crisis centers across the nation connects callers to crisis counselors and mental health referrals day and night. Veterans, active military, and their families are connected to a veterans suicide prevention hotline specialist. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline website also provides information for the deaf and hard of hearing, information about how to help someone else, and general information about mental health, therapy, and suicide prevention.
