Two new crisis help lines are available.

Dial 988

If you or a loved one is in crisis, help is just three numbers away. Dial 988 to text, call, or chat with a compassionate volunteer who is ready to listen. This service is available by cell, landline, or voice over internet devices.

Native and Strong Lifeline

Washington now provides the Native and Strong Lifeline — dedicated to serving American Indian and Alaska Native people. Calls are answered by Native crisis counselors who are tribal members and descendants closely tied to their communities. Counselors are fully trained in crisis intervention and support, with special emphasis on cultural and traditional practices related to healing. Dial 988 to reach the Native and Strong Lifeline.
