Call SAMHSA’s National Helpline for Free Mental Health Information

During these difficult times, it’s important to look out for the mental health of ourselves and others.

If you or a family member is facing mental and/or substance use disorders, call SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357), for a free, confidential information service — available in English and Spanish.

This service is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and provides referrals to local treatment centers, support groups, and community-based organizations.

For those who have no insurance or are underinsured, SAMHSA’s National Helpline will refer you to your state office, which is responsible for state-funded treatment programs. The helpline can also refer you to facilities that charge on a sliding fee scale or accept Medicare or Medicaid.
