T-Mobile Activates 988 Mental Health Emergency Lifeline Number Ahead of Deadline

Mental health is an important topic in today's time. And because of this, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has designated 988 as the nationwide emergency lifeline for mental health support. Out of all the wireless carriers, T-Mobile is the first to make this number live. 

Earlier today, T-Mobile revealed that its customers can now call 988 to get free mental health support. The support is provided by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), which is comprised of 180 local and state-funded crisis centers. 

This makes T-Mobile the first to activate the number after the FCC set a deadline for July 2022. With this, T-Mobile customers can already make a call to the support group over the holiday season. The added stress caused by the health crisis might take a toll over the holidays. And with the emergency lifeline number active, it makes it much easier for individuals to get the help they need. 

Apart from the designated 988 number, users can also dial 1-800-273-8255 (1-800-273-TALK). But the new number is much easier and faster to remember for anyone who needs support.
