New 988 Suicide Prevention Number

On July 16, 2022, Washington will join the rest of the United States in using the 988 dialing code — the new three-digit number for call, text, or chat that connects people to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL). 
People can dial 988 if they are having thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crises, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support. 
Prior to July 2022, NSPL crisis centers were accessed by calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255). This number will remain active during the transition to 988.

Salish Regional Crisis Resources and Protocols that Remain Unchanged

    • The addition of the 988 number does not impact the Salish Regional Crisis Line (SRCL) providing local crisis support and connection within the Salish region.
    • Please continue to call the SRCL at 888-910-0416 to request local crisis support and connection with Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams across the Salish region.
    • All community members including individuals, family members, community providers,  first responders, law enforcement, hospitals, etc. continue to access crisis services through the Salish Regional Crisis Line. The Regional Toll-Free Crisis Line continues to function as triage, resource and referral, and dispatch of Mobile Crisis Outreach, including Designated Crisis Responders (DCRs).
