You’ve got backup

You’ve got backup

If you or someone you know is in emotional distress, you may not know where to turn. But there’s plenty of support available to you.

 

Build a close relationship with your health care provider. If you’re struggling, they can suggest appropriate treatment. They can also follow up often so you feel better, sooner.

 

If there’s a threat of harm, make the very first call to 988, or your local emergency hotline. There are many free, 24/7 hotlines to support you through tough times, too.

You can also visit our crisis and community support resource center. You’ll find helpful articles, local resources for national events and tips for emergency preparedness.
