Members Of Congress Look To Change Suicide Hotline Number

Members of Congress are hoping to change the Suicide Prevention Lifeline number from a 1-800 number to an N11 number. They say there has been success since the United States shifted to using 911 for emergencies more than a half century ago. Their hope is to help those suffering get the help they need more quickly.
