Call Senator Baldwin – One Phone Call Can Be Life-Saving

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.

You can reach Senator Baldwin’s office through this link:

*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.)
