National helpline

A great number 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.

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.

Suicide hotline

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.

Upcoming blog post

I am currently working on a blog post that can be found here once it is complete: Mental health resources

I will keep you posted on that. It should be up next week!

I also have another post you can check out here, filled with more mental health resources.
