Mental Health Resources

There are mental health resources for those currently in distress/crisis.

  1. Project Hope is a FEMA-funded crisis services initiative that offers support to individuals impacted by COVID. The Project Hope Emotional Support Line is available to all, including youth. It’s confidential, anonymous, and free. 1-844- 863-9314.
  2. Crisis Text Line (CTL) is a service that offers free anonymous 24/7 text-based crisis counselor support. 150,000 New Yorkers have used the service since 2013 and ~75% of them are under the age of 25. NYS has formed a “keyword” partnership with CTL. Those in crisis text “Got5” to 741-741 to enter the system.

Remember, mental health resources are available for New Yorkers who need them. As we continue through the winter we can't underestimate the mental and emotional strain of the pandemic. New Yorkers can visit for free mindfulness resources or call our support hotline at 1-844-863-9314.
