“If you are feeling emotionally distressed or overwhelmed due to COVID-19 news & developments, please call our 24/7 Help Line at (800) 854-7771 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-8255 for support.” https://dmh.lacounty.gov/covid-19-information/

Note: the (800) 273-8255 number remains operational even after the launch of the three-digit number 988, which is modeled after 911.
