Suicide is Preventable, Act Now

Image

Too many lives are cut short by suicide. The national suicide crisis is affecting our friends, our families, and our communities. And tragically, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people ages 10-34.

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.

On the last day of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we need your help to make this number a reality.


Contact your member of Congress. Ask them to cosponsor H.R. 4194, the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act.

*If you or somebody you know is in mental health crisis, help is available now. Text “NAMI” to 741741 or call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. This bill will make the Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number 3 digits, so it’s easier for people to remember.
