Resources for Mental Health, Substance Use, and Well-Being

If you or a loved one is struggling emotionally, you don’t have to do it alone. Everyone needs support from time to time. Help is available right from home, whether you need to talk to someone immediately (see Crisis Hotlines), you’re seeking ongoing support (see Other Resources), or you’re struggling with addiction (see Substance Use Disorder Help).
