988 is the new FCC-designated three-digit number that connects people to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. New York State is working to create a robust, comprehensive crisis response system, available to all New Yorkers. This system includes someone to call, someone to come, and somewhere to go when experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. The implementation of 988 on July 16, 2022, is integral to this process.
