988 - National Suicide Prevention

Starting in July 2022, people in crisis and those trying to help them will have a new three-digit phone number, 988, to reach the national suicide prevention network. Mental health experts are hoping that the three-digit number will deliver a breakthrough in assisting people in crisis who may otherwise try to harm themselves.


People who call, text, or chat 988 will be able to reach trained counselors who belong to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network.


For non-urgent matters on campus, Mrs. Struck, our Student Services Specialist, is in K25 to listen and answer questions in a safe atmosphere of acceptance, non-judgment, and confidentiality concerning a variety of life’s challenges. K25 is in the Counseling Building.
