Lawmaker Pushes For Mental Health Hotline

A Utah lawmaker is pushing for a three-digit mental health hotline. Senator Daniel Thatcher prefers 3-1-1, but that number is already being used in Provo. Thatcher says the hotline would be easier to remember than other ten-digit phone numbers where people can call for help about suicide, drug abuse or other issues. Thatcher’s bill is currently in the House.
