(Pierre, SD) — A new mental health crisis hotline is rolling out this weekend in South Dakota. The 988 line launches Saturday, offering 24-hour services every day of the year for those experiencing a mental health emergency. The South Dakota Department of Social Services says suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the state. The hotline works just like 911, allowing those in need to connect to a trained mental health official immediately by dialing 988.
