988 Hotline

The National Suicide Prevention hotline has — rather quietly, I think — rolled out a new three-digit hotline number for quick access.

Too many folks — and I’m looking at the veterans — still take what my friend Tam refers to as the “Permanent solution to a temporary problem.”

If you’re in crisis, the new quick access number is 988. You can call or text, and someone will be there. If you have the old number, don’t worry — it’ll still work.

Pass it around, folks, it’s not getting the press I think it deserves.
