    You may have heard that on July 16, 2022,  988 will become the nationwide 3-digit dialing code for mental health crisis and suicide prevention. It will replace the 1-800 number currently used by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. On this date, when someone calls 988 all phones in the U.S. (mobile and landline) will connect with the mental health crisis/suicide prevention system. This will allow anyone in the U.S. to call 988 and get help designed specifically for someone dealing with a mental health crisis.

    In an effort to inform as many people as we can about the 988 system in New Jersey, Assistant Commissioner Valerie Mielke of the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services has created this presentation that will provide you with an overview https://youtu.be/ZuKhq-VPVjU.  Should you have questions after you watch this presentation, please write to our direct email address: 988Questions@dhs.nj.gov.

    Thank you for your interest in 988. We are eager to begin this new journey in July with all other U.S. States and Territories. We hope Assistant Commissioner Mielke’s presentation will shed some light on the plans for this life-saving system as it evolves in New Jersey.
