Help prevent suicide
Help create a 3-digit national suicide prevention hotline, similar to 911. Too many lives are cut short by suicide. The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act, H.R. 4194, is a bipartisan bill that would create an easy-to-remember 3-digit number as the nationwide hotline for suicide prevention and mental health crisis. This number will make it easier for people in the U.S. experiencing a crisis to receive immediate and appropriate mental health support and referral. We need your help to make this number a reality.
