Welcome to my mental health resources page. I hope this information is helpful to anyone facing crisis or other significant mental health issues.
A great number in the United States you can call is 1-877-SAMHSA7 (1-877-726-4727). This number will connect you to a live person, and is available Monday through Friday, from 8 AM to 8 PM EST. It will point you toward resources based on your situation and location.
If you are in the United Kingdom, you can call: +44 (0) 8457 90 90 90
National Institute of Mental Health
NIMH, or the National Institute of Mental Health, has an excellent website that will connect you to numerous mental health services. You can look up information about specific conditions, or find treatment resources.
Mental Health America
Mental Health America is another great online resource. You can search for mental health services in your area. You can also find ways to volunteer, and take a mental health screening.
Online support groups
There are a lot of great online support groups you can take advantage of. A website I found recently is HealthfulChat and it gives you a wide variety of chat rooms for those with mental illness.
Lastly, I wanted to provide one more number you can call. This number is geared toward those having suicidal thoughts. If you are in crisis, call: 1-800-273-8255.
I also have another post you can check out here, filled with more mental health resources.
