Be the Lifeline
Too many people are experiencing suicidal crisis or mental health-related distress without the support and care they need, and sadly, the pandemic has only made a bad situation worse when it comes to mental health and wellness. One thing that Weber CTC is asked a lot is “What can I do to help?” or “Where can people go if they or someone they know is in need of help?” We hope you find these resources informative and helpful.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255) transitioned to a new dialing code: 988. As of July 16, 2022, the 988 dialing code is live. The previous Lifeline number will still function, but 988 is an easier to remember connection to help during a crisis. 988 is a direct connection to compassionate, accessible care and support for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress – whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.
liveonutah.org is a mental health and suicide prevention campaign that aims to modify attitudes and social norms to reduce suffering and save lives. At this website, you can access information about how to get help, how to get involved, and other resources that are available to our community. Weber CTC cares about you and your loved ones. If you or someone you know is struggling, we hope that these resources can help.
If you or someone you know needs support now, call or text 988 or chat 988lifeline.org
