Minnesota rolling out 988 number
for mental health crisis support on July 16


Starting Saturday, July 16, people facing a mental health crisis can dial 988 to connect to support. The State of Minnesota’s change is part of a nationwide effort to transition the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to a phone number people can more easily remember and access in times of crisis. The shift also includes an online chat feature and new texting option.

Interpretation services are available through calling the number. Currently, chat and text are only available in English.

The new 988 dialing code will serve as a universal entry point, so people can reach a trained crisis counselor who can help wherever they live. Anyone can dial or text 988 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to reach crisis support or to use an online chat feature to connect with crisis support. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

The Lifeline 10-digit number, 1-800-273-TALK (8255), will stay available and route people to the same resources. People should call 911 if they suspect drug overdose or need immediate medical help.

To reach the Veterans Crisis Line, dial 988 and press 1. Calls will route to the same trained Veterans Crisis Line responders. The Veterans Crisis Line will still be available by chat ( and text (838255).

The Lifeline is a national network of more than 200 call centers. Minnesota has four Lifeline centers that connect callers to nearby or state-specific resources and services quickly and efficiently.
