Should I call 911, 988, or 211?

Depending on the kind of help you need, there are different numbers available to call, 24/7/365.

  • Call 911 when there is a situation where law enforcement, firefighters, or medical help is needed right away.
  • Call 988 when you need to talk to a trained crisis counselor right away. If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, a substance use crisis, mental health crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress, this is the number to call. You can also call 988 if you’re worried about a loved one who might need this support.
  • Call 211 when you have other types of needs, such as help paying a bill, finding employment, or finding a food pantry in your area.
