Are You Depressed and Struggling? There is Help

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, the dialing code 988 just launched as a lifeline to connect you with someone who cares at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (old name)/Suicide and Crisis Lifeline (new name).  The previous Lifeline 800 number still works, but these three numbers are easier to remember and immediately put you in touch with a trained counselor who will listen, provide support, and can connect a person with resources.   Paragon Orthopedic Center hopes you will remember 988 for yourself or someone you love.  More information with links about what happens when you call, the history of 988, and if you are interested in being a volunteer for the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is here:
