Experiencing stress, isolation, loss, or systemic social inequities is harmful to the overall health of Americans. Improving emotional well-being, social connectedness, and resiliency through research-based health promotion and prevention programs is critical to population health.

Now, Delaware County residents have a new, easier way to connect to behavioral or mental health crisis services.

Starting July 16, 2022 individuals who call, text, or chat with “988” from anywhere in the United States are now directly connected to the same, trained compassionate crisis response counselors that were previously accessible through the long-standing, 10-digit* National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, rebranded as the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.

988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline services can be used by anyone, any time (24 hours a day, seven days a week), at no cost to the caller. For more information on this essential service, click here.

As a reminder, Delaware County residents also have access to the long-standing Delaware County Crisis Services.
