Would establish the 988 Crisis Hotline Center, using the digits “988” in compliance with existing federal law and standards governing the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The bill would require the Office of Emergency Services to implement the hotline system, including hiring a director and designating 988 crisis hotline centers to provide crisis intervention services and crisis care coordination to individuals accessing the 988 and would require that all elements of the 988 system be designed to meet the unique needs of California’s diverse communities.
