988: The New Way to Connect to Behavioral Health Crisis Services

Maryland has a new way to connect to local behavioral health crisis services. 

Calling 988 will connect callers directly to the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline which encompasses all behavioral crisis services, to include all mental health and substance use (problems with drug and alcohol use).

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline replaces the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline AND expands services to cover all behavioral health crisis services.

Learn more about 988 in Maryland 

For information about the Suicide Prevention Plan or to request materials, community presentations, or trainings, contact Jessica Fisher, Suicide Prevention Coordinator, at [email protected].
