Mental Health Resources and Support for Youth in Crisis

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline

Like 911 and other national, 3-digit phone numbers, 988 was created to be easier to remember and make crisis care easier to access. Available 24/7/365 and free-of-charge, callers to 988 will connect with a compassionate, highly trained counselor who can help address their issues as smoothly as possible.

The library - and the community at large - are here to help you find what you need. Find help in our community for whatever problems you or your friends face.
