TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse plans to help more Oklahomans with its new mental health hotline.
The service, which is set to begin operating mid-July, will be offered 24/7 and will offer services for mental health crisis calls and texts.
The number replacing the current 11-digit National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 988.
Operators are licensed and certified health crisis specialists who answer calls, connect to and dispatch local services, and mobile crisis teams.
