The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline was launched July 16th, 2022, forever changing the way Americans could reach out for support during a mental health crisis. The StarVista Crisis Center is proud to be one of the 12 crisis centers across California responding to 988 contacts. The 12 crisis centers in California respond to more 988 contacts than any other state in the country.
Whether you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, problems with substance use, or other emotional distress, you always have somewhere to turn.
If you are a San Mateo County resident, you can call our local line at 650-579-0350 to speak with a trained crisis worker 24/7 or dial 988 with a 650 area code.
StarVista Crisis Center will be expanding to take 988 chats & texts at the end of July!
