The National Suicide hotline number is changing to a simple 3 digit number, 988.

It is also converting from a suicide hotline to a mental health crisis line.

The Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health has launched the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline across the state of Illinois. And there is tremendous need, given:

  • For people ages 10–34, suicide is a leading cause of death.
  • From April 2020 through April 2021, over 100,000 people died from drug overdoses.
  • An overall increase in stress and uncertainty arising from worldwide conflict and tension, incidents of gun violence & mass shootings, the COVID-19 pandemic, and other trauma affects Illinoisans across our state.
  • In 2020, the U.S. had one death by suicide every 11 minutes.

There are people, families and communities who have been impacted. Yet, in the face of these urgent realities, there is hope.

On July 16, 2022, the State of Illinois activated 988, the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, where compassionate, accessible care and support are available for anyone experiencing mental health–related distress.

988 is the new three-digit number for calls, available in multiple languages. People can dial 988 if they are having thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crises, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

If you have any questions please reach out to Police Social Worker, Geri Silic, LCSW at 847-384-2137.
