We can all help prevent suicide. The 988 Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals in the United States.

Douglas County in 2020:

  • One in 10 adults (18 years and older) in Douglas County reported that their mental health was not good for 14 or more days during the previous 30 days.
  • The percentage of high school students who felt so sad or hopeless that they stopped doing usual activities almost every day for two or more consecutive weeks during the last 12 months was 30.9%.
  • Mental health-related issues were the leading cause of hospitalization (2,389.7 per 100,000).
  • Deaths by suicide were more common than alcohol-induced deaths in the County.

Douglas County established the Douglas County Mental Health Initiative (DCMHI) in 2014 to unite community partners, address unmet mental health needs, connect people to mental health services and prevent those in need from falling through the cracks of the mental health system. Learn more about the resources and programs available through this initiative.
