911 call center, Talbert House say new 988 partnership going well (OH)

It’s been nearly two years since the federal mandate making the 988 suicide prevention and mental health crises hotline accessible nationwide took effect July 16, 2022.

The Cincinnati Emergency Communications Center and Talbert House say they’re working well together when calls to 911 and 988 overlap. Talbert House operates the 988 crisis hotline in Cincinnati and Hamilton County. (It also serves as a back-up location for other call centers across Ohio.)
