Helplines

Mental Health/Warmline

 As we know, we’re in an unprecedented time for everyone.  It’s uncertain and very scary.  This fear is completely understandable, and the indefinite timeline is likely creating a lot of anxiety during a time where we may be or feel more removed from our support networks.  But social distancing doesn’t have to mean social isolation, and we want people to know that even as we all face this difficult period, no one is alone.

As of April 1 at 6 p.m. a new resource became available to the citizens of PA.  A 24/7 mental health and crisis support line for people dealing with anxiety or other difficult emotions became available. Callers will be able to speak with staff who are trained in trauma-informed principles and will listen, assess the person’s needs, triage, and refer to other local supports and professionals as needed.

The Mental Health Support Line can be reached toll-free, 24/7 at 1-855-284-2494 from anywhere in PA.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.
