Save the Date! Broward’s Read for the Record is on its way!
On October 27, we’ll read an incredible story together – Nigel and the Moon by Antwan Eady, illustrated by Gracey Zhang. This moving and inclusive narrative encourages children to celebrate where they come from, who they are, and who they want to be.
The Children’s Services Council of Broward County Florida is proud to sponsor this yearly event, part of the Jumpstart National Read for the Record campaign, which highlights the importance of early literacy and language skills for all children. #ReadForTheRecord #NigelAndTheMoon

211 Broward Partners with The National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline in Launching 988 as the New Phone Number for Crisis Response

In 2020, The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), designated 988 as the new three-digit phone number for the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. This means that all telecommunications companies will make needed changes so individuals can access the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline using the 988-dialing code, in addition to the existing toll-free number, 1-800-273-TALK. On July 16, 2022, the U.S. will officially transition to using the 988-dialing code, and it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to strengthen and expand the existing National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline Network.
988 is an easy-to-remember number for crisis response regarding mental health, substance use, and suicide. Therefore, the volume of mental health, substance use, and suicide crisis calls to 988 is expected to significantly increase with the implementation of this number. The new number, however, will not replace other community numbers such as 911 or 211.
988 is a direct connection to compassionate, accessible care and support for anyone needing behavioral health-related crisis response – whether they are experiencing thoughts of suicide, mental health, or substance use crisis. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.
211 Broward has been a National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline partner for nine years, answering many of the calls that originate in Broward County. 211 highly specialized trained crisis helpline counselors are ready to provide 24/7 free and confidential emotional support and crisis intervention. In addition, 211 provides connections to community resources, such as food pantries and other basic needs assistance.
If you are thinking about suicide or are worried about a friend or loved one, please reach out to the National Suicide & Crisis Lifeline, at 988 (or 1-800-273-8255).
