​988 Toolkit


The Maryland Department of Health recently launched 988, the new national suicide and crisis lifeline.​

Contacting 988 provides a direct connection for anyone needing support for mental health or substance use (problems with drugs and alcohol), having thoughts of suicide, or being worried about someone who may need crisis support. Learn more.

In order to ensure a clear understanding of 988 and how it works, as well as the services 988 offers, we have created a toolkit that provides your organization with downloadable and printable outreach materials to meet the needs of your audiences. (If you plan to use these assets as part of a paid campaign, please email margie.flanagan@maryland.gov​ before the scheduled launch.)

*As the Maryland Department of Health creates new assets, they will be added to this toolkit for your use.  ​
