A new number is coming for those who are seeking the ultimate worst possible permanent solution to their problems, suicide. Instead of a longer number, people who are struggling with the pain in their lives (like the 1000 former LinkedIn employees just laid off), can dial 988 in a few years. In the meantime, and after, those struggling can call the original hotline number anytime by phoning the 10-digit number: 1-800-273-8255 (TALK).

In two years, individuals in suicidal crisis seeking help will have a number that’s easy to remember and quick to dial to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
