The launch of the new National Suicide Prevention Lifeline this past July could not have come at a better time. Since the onset of the pandemic, behavioral health conditions have increased 50% and suicide rates continue to increase nationwide. In December 2022, more than 430,000 people were connected to the crisis services using the 988 Lifeline.
At Bamboo Health we are dedicated to helping expedite care for those experiencing a behavioral health crisis. We have developed a Crisis Management Playbook to help you better understand the evaluation, planning, and implementation process of selecting a solution provider to help support your 988 crisis response initiative.
