• Get Immediate Help

    Main page content

    People often don’t get the mental health services they need because they don’t know where to start.

    Talk to your primary care doctor or another health professional about mental health problems. Ask them to connect you with the right mental health services.

    If you do not have a health professional who is able to assist you, use these resources to find help for yourself, your friends, your family, or your students.
