NENA applauds the FCC’s work to implement 9-8-8 as the nationwide short code for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For more than 50 years, the nation has benefited enormously from universal, simple access to emergency response; suicide-related calls should be no different. We believe a dedicated, easy-to-remember method for reaching the suicide prevention lifeline will lead to more robust, specialized help for callers, and will ultimately save countless lives.
