Sponsor Background

The 988 task force is guiding the development of the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline in Missouri. The implementation of 988 increases access to life-saving services and reduces the stigma surrounding suicide and mental health conditions. The 988 task force meets monthly to address planning topics, including the following:

  • Ensure statewide and 24/7 coverage for 988 calls, texts, and chats

  • Secure funding for 988 centers

  • Expand 988 center capacity to answer calls, texts, and chats

  • Support 988 centers to provide follow-up services

  • Connect with other community partners such as 911, social services, etc.

  • Promote 988 to MIssourians
