For National Suicide Prevention Month I designed a Suicide Prevention (North America) series for America, Canada, Mexico, The Bahamas, and Cuba that lists the hotlines available and denotes whether they also offer text or online chat services.
Please call 9-8-8 if you’re feeling hopeless and desperate, worried you might hurt yourself or others, or are having suicidal thoughts. You are not alone and there is always someone out there to listen to you.
The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is a United States-based suicide prevention network of over 200+ crisis centers that provides 24/7 service via a toll-free hotline with the number 9-8-8. It is available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.
