🏳️‍🌈CNN: Forthcoming 988 suicide prevention hotline plans pilot program specifically for LGBTQ community🏳️‍🌈

The nonprofit that operates the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline plans to soon launch a pilot program for LGBTQ individuals to call. The hope is that such a program could become a permanent subnetwork, similar to one that already exists for veterans, and add a more specialized crisis line for a community that is considered at higher risk for suicide and self-harm.
