Support & Resources

There are so many resources for mental health and support it’s amazing! I know, I know  — it can definitely be difficult for some of us that live in more spread-out, or rural communities – first and foremost, most states have a 211 Resource Line. Some of them are run by United Way, some directly by the state or city, but it’s there – dial it! You just might talk to a Resource Specialist like me, together we can get you connected to some of the following types of resources…
