Mental Health is just as important as physical health. Now there is a three-digit number for mental health emergencies that’s easy to remember... 988!! The new three-digit number that connects people to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. This service is for anyone who is suicidal, experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis or experiencing any kind of emotional distress.
For more information check out the attached flyer from the Office of Mental Health or New York's 988 Website (https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/crisis/988.html). The PDF flyer is available on the web page in English, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Haitian Creole, Arabic, Korean, Bengali and Russian.
