New 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

After July 16, 2022, anyone in mental health distress can call or text 988 or use the chat function via www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org to connect with a counselor through what will be known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. Wisconsinites who use 988 will connect with Wisconsin Lifeline, an in-state call center where trained counselors answer calls, chats, and texts.

Please continue to call 800-273-8255 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline until the launch of 988.
