Here's today's feel-good story:
988 is now the new three-digit dialing code that will connect callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
Starting July 16th, the access code will be available to everyone across the United States and will help users speak to trained counselors that will listen, understand, provide support, and connect them to resources.
The current lifeline number, (1-800-273-8255), will still remain available.
Since 2005, the network of over 200 crisis centers has been in operation and proven to be effective.
