Since 2005, Vibrant Emotional Health has provided oversight and management of the Suicide Prevention Lifeline and its local call centers, backup centers, and chat/ text functions with a network of over 180 centers in all fifty states. This longstanding history has positioned Vibrant Emotional Health as the best suited organization as the only identified organization with the required experience and national reach to work with the backup centers and chat/text organizations with expansion of their workforce and development of the infrastructure that is needed for the launch of 988 in July 2022. Vibrant Emotional Health’s history, experience, and ongoing communications with these centers are critical given the time sensitivity of the need for sufficient capacity to be in place by July 2022. Several external evaluations have reinforced the evidence of effectiveness of Lifeline services through oversight of the Lifeline by Vibrant Emotional Health. The Federal Communication Commission has ordered that by July 16, 2022 every cell phone, land line and voice over internet provider in the United States must make 988 operational and this date of implementation is also a requirement in the National Suicide Hotline Designation Act. Given the anticipated significantly increased contact volumes with the universal availability of 988, a rapid upgrading of Lifeline capacity is required by July 2022. It would not be possible for any other organization to establish the relationships with crisis centers that Vibrant Emotional Health has built over the last 15 years by July 2022, running the risk of significant numbers of unanswered calls, chats, and texts. In addition, if these funds were awarded to another organization, oversight of the expanded backup and chat/text centers would be fragmented and the network would run the risk of inefficiencies and adverse outcomes to individuals in crisis during the period when the demand for Lifeline is expected to surge with the launch of 988. Coordination, quality monitoring, and rapid response would be compromised.

implementation of follow-up protocols; expand and enhance core Lifeline 
network functions; expand and facilitate timely and ongoing 
communication with the existing network of backup and text/chat centers 
to minimize wait time and maximize call connectivity; expand the 
ability of backup and text/chat centers to respond to sudden and large 
spikes in call volume immediately following a public service 
announcement, disaster, or other type of traumatic event; expand 
collaboration with backup and text/chat centers to ensure they have 
sufficient policies and procedures for the training and supervision of 
center staff in caller engagement, risk assessment, intervention, and 
linkage to appropriate services; develop and implement a quality 
improvement plan focusing on policies, first contact, assessment, 
referral, and access to local care to ensure there is a comprehensive

centers, and the Spanish language sub-network in accessing mobile 
crisis services and coordinating with 911 throughout the United States;

centered and culturally appropriate responses.
