It is estimated that in Wisconsin, one person dies by suicide on average every nine hours.
You can help change this statistic.
Call Senator Baldwin (D-WI) and urge her to take the lead in cosponsoring legislation in the US Senate designating “988” as a nationwide hotline number for suicide prevention and mental health crisis.
A 3-digit national hotline number (988) will make it easier for people in the U.S. experiencing a mental health crisis to receive immediate and appropriate mental health support and referral.

*If you or somebody you know is in mental health crisis, help is available now! Text “NAMI” to 741741, or call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. (The bill will make the Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number to be “988”, to be easier for people to remember.)
