Amanpour and Company | Clip | Rep. Moulton on the New 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline
A new initiative for suicide prevention is already changing lives. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is accessible at an easy-to-remember 3-digit dialing code: 9-8-8. The new hotline saw a 45% increase in calls and messages in its first week. Rep. Seth Moulton co-wrote the bill to change the number after revealing his own experience with post-traumatic stress disorder.
