If you have a mental health crisis and need emergency assistance – call 911
Calling a mental health helpline can serve a variety of purposes, including:
- Support: Mental health crisis hotlines are set up to provide support during any crisis, guiding callers through suicidal thoughts, psychotic breaks, or manic episodes. If you are concerned about a family member or friend, calling a hotline can help you learn how to best help a loved one.
- Education: Helplines provide information about mental health and the effects that mental illness can have on people and their loved ones.
- Referrals: Hotlines can connect callers to treatment centers that are tailored to their individual needs.
- Treatment: Helplines can provide information about what to expect from mental health treatment providers and how treatment can help
