Help at hand

The new 988Oklahoma lifeline plays a key role in reshaping mental healthcare access.
Late nights saturated in sadness, struggling through the first holiday season after the loss of a family member, frozen by unnamed fears—mental health doesn’t have to reach a crisis point before it receives proper care and support. “Whether it be, you know, two o’clock in the morning and you’re sad and blue, or you’re in a crisis situation and need some further intervention, 988 is for everybody, everybody to call out and reach out, and we hope that people reach out sooner than later,” Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) Chief Communications Officer Heath Hayes said.
