Make 9-8-8 A Reality!
From the National Council on Behavioral Health:
"Hope and help are within reach for millions of struggling Americans – but we need your support. A few minutes of your time will make a difference for decades to come.
This National Suicide Prevention Week, as we recognize the importance of suicide prevention and the work of service providers in this space, we invite you to raise your voice.
On Tuesday, September 15, we are joining a coalition of partners to call on the House of Representatives to pass the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act.
Having a three-digit dialing code (9-8-8) in place can’t wait – especially as the pandemic creates new obstacles to accessing care. Will you help us elevate our #988CantWait message?
Mark your calendars for our virtual “day of action” next Tuesday as we take our message to Congress and urge the passage of this life-saving legislation.
Look for an email from us on September 15 with a link to contact your legislators and tips for maximizing your social media efforts. Questions? Contact us!"
