Support Legislation to Create a National 3-Digit Number for Suicide Prevention
The National Suicide Hotline Designation Act, H.R. 4194, is a bipartisan bill that would create an easy-to-remember 3-digit number (similar in concept to 911) as the nationwide hotline for suicide prevention and mental health crisis. This number would make it easier for people in the U.S. experiencing a crisis to receive immediate and appropriate mental health support and referral.
The national suicide crisis is affecting our friends, our families and our communities. And tragically, suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 10-34. That’s why this legislation is so important.
We urge you to contact your U.S. Senators and the U.S. Representative for your district. Please ask them to cosponsor H.R. 4194, the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act.
