On July 16, 2022, the U.S. launched a new three-digit phone number—988—an easy-to-remember way for people to connect with help and support during mental health, substance use, or suicide crisis. People can call or text 988 or chat online (988lifeline.org) to be connected to trained counselors.
988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (now known as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline), and is now active across the United States.
When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary. The previous Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.

For some students, the path to completing a graduate degree can sometimes be more difficult than expected and the pressure of personal and academic responsibilities can be too much to handle. The National Graduate Student Crisis Line (877-GRAD-HLP) is staffed by trained counselors who understand the pressures. Don’t wait until a crisis arrives to call the National Grad Crisis Line.
They are available 24/7 to listen, connect, and assist you today! The National Graduate Student Crisis Line is part of Grad Resources, a faith-based organization affiliated with the Christian Grads Fellowship.
This service provides free, nationwide, 24/7 support for people in crisis. All via text message.
