Hey all, just dropping in with a quick bonus post to let you all know that Episode 2 of Just Mental Health, the newest Dark Tales Project Podcast is available now!
Episode 2 looks at the legislation that was recently signed into law by President Trump to designate 988 as the new suicide hotline and mental health crisis line. This is an important development for suicide prevention, as 988 will be much better than the current number, which is 1-800-273-TALK.
Having an easy to remember three digit suicide prevention number is also an important step forward because it treats mental health emergencies as the same as other emergencies, giving it an easy three digit number that will also allow first responders to better know what they are responding to.
So if you get a chance, check out episode 2 of Just Mental Health.
