Crisis Resources

We all have mental health. It can be good, it can be bad, it can be somewhere in-between, and it can vary day-by-day. Sometimes, because of our genetics or our environment, things can become tough. Mental illnesses like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and many more are experienced by 1 in 5 people every year and, unfortunately, only 50% receive treatment. But we can change that – and it starts with you!

No matter your age or the challenges you face, there are resources and support available to help you lead a full life, accomplish your goals, and help you in recovery. Below are some of the best resources available to you right now.

Crisis Resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. These resources are free and are meant for people in crisis and those concerned about someone who may be in crisis. If you’re in doubt, reach out via whichever method is most comfortable for you.
