988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline

With an increased number of people reporting worsening mental health in recent years, it is imperative that people are aware of the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) telephone program.

People experiencing a suicidal, substance use, and/or mental health crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress can call, chat or text 988, and speak to trained crisis counselors. The national hotline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The previous National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will continue to be operational and route calls to 988 indefinitely.

Assisted Living for Seniors with Clinical Depression

Aging comes with its fair share of challenges, and it’s normal to struggle with some of the changes getting older brings. But, depression is not a normal part of aging; it is a mood disorder that requires attention and treatment. Depression can affect a person’s thoughts and feelings, and interfere with one’s motivation and ability to complete daily activities such as bathing, eating, and sleeping.
