988 is now the three-digit dialing code that routes callers to the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (or 988 Lifeline).

The previous 988 Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis.

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, across the United States. The Lifeline is comprised of a national network of over 200 local crisis centers, combining custom local care and resources with national standards and best practices.

Callers who follow the “press 1” prompt are connected to the Veterans Crisis Line. A Spanish Language line is available by pressing 2 when calling 9-8-8, and more than 240 languages are supported through a Tele-Interpreters service. Callers now also have the option of following a “press 3” prompt to be connected to a counselor specifically trained in supporting LGBTQI+ callers.

How to Anonymously Report a Nursing Home:

To anonymously report a nursing home, you can contact your local long-term care ombudsman or file a complaint with your state’s Department of Public Health.

You can also call the Eldercare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 for directions to the appropriate agency. This locator tool is run by the Administration on Aging (AoA), which works with state and local agencies across the country as part of the Older Americans Act (OAA).

Each state has regulations that protect the identities of anyone reporting nursing home abuse unless they agree to reveal it or a court orders them to do so. They are also protected from retaliation or legal action.
