FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tewksbury Police Department Shares Information on New National Su***de Prevention Lifeline Number
New Three-Digit Phone Number 988 to Take Effect July 16.

TEWKSBURY — Police Chief Ryan Columbus and the Tewksbury Police Department wish to share information regarding the new National Su***de Prevention Lifeline number, 988, which will take effect on Saturday, July 16.

The 988 dialing code will become the new national number routing callers to the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline across the U.S. on July 16. The new phone line will be accessible 24/7/365 by call or text.

The new number was designated by Congress in 2020. Similar to calling 911 for emergency response, the three-digit number is easy to remember for individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts or struggling with emotional distress, or for those worried about a friend to loved one.

Beginning July 16, when individuals call or text 988 they will be connected with trained counselors from the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline network. Counselors will listen, understand how the caller’s problems are affecting them, provide support and connect them to resources if necessary. The Lifeline can also be reached through online chat su***depreventionlifeline.org/chat.

Language translation services are also available to all callers, including the Spanish Language Line, which can be accessed by pressing 2 after dialing.

Military service members, veterans and their families may reach the Veterans Crisis Line by pressing 1 after dialing 9-8-8, as well as by chatting online at veteranscrisisline.net or texting 838255.

LGBTQ youth may also use the Trevor Lifeline by calling 1-866-488-7386 or texting 678-678 to access information and support for LGBTQ youth.

The current Lifeline hotline number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain in service even after the launch of 988. Dialing either number will route callers to the same services, no matter which number they use.

According to the Lifeline, su***de is the second-leading cause of death among young people, and, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, was the tenth-leading cause of death in the nation. The Lifeline has received over 20 million calls from people in distress looking for support from its inception in 2005 to 2020.

Chief Columbus and the Tewksbury Police Department encourage anyone who may be struggling or knows someone who is struggling to call the Lifeline for help and to get the necessary resources. “We also want to remind people that they can always call the police if for some reason they cannot get the help that they need or are in immediate crisis. We can refer people to our very successful mental health collaborative, The Front Line Initiative, who have clinicians ready to help our local residents,” said Chief Columbus.
