If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call 911, go to the nearest emergency room, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24-hour crisis center, or text MHA to 741741 at the Crisis Text Line.

Screening, Assessment and Support Services (SASS) program for children and adolescents experiencing a mental health crisis  – 1-800-345-9049

If you feel overwhelmed about COVID-19 and need someone to talk to, call or text SAMHSA’s Disaster Distress Hotline. This is a 24/7 hotline dedicated to emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters. 

If you find that you are very lonely and do not have people to reach out to, a warm line might be useful. Warm Lines are hotlines that you can call to speak with someone. You do not need to be experiencing a “crisis” to call/text a warm line. Your call/texting session might be brief; be prepared to wait “on hold.”

211 – Call for free, confidential referral and information helpline that connects people of all ages to essential health and human services
