Thank Your Members of Congress and Encourage More Action on Suicide Prevention!
On Monday, September 21, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act (S.2661). This legislation will support the implementation of the three-digit "9-8-8" dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline through funding guidance, federal reporting, and specialized services for at-risk communities like LGBTQ-youth and veterans.
After unanimous passage by the U.S. Senate in May and unanimous passage by the U.S. House this week, the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act will soon be signed into law!
