You Can Receive Mental Health Help Remotely

Mental health help is available for anyone needing extra support. Whether you’re experiencing coronavirus anxiety or a worsening of another mental health condition due to the COVID-19 outbreak or your needs are unrelated to it, you can connect with professional or peer support when you need it right from home.

HealthyPlace offers mental health resources and support. See HealthyPlace’s “Mental Health Information” page for a list of useful articles covering the basics of mental health and mental illness.

Receive Professional Mental Health Therapy Online

Many organizations offer help and support via phone (some offer online chat or texting connections, too). Some operate 24/7 while others have set times of operation.  Among them:

You don’t have to physically connect with someone in order to receive mental health support. Reach out to reputable sources for long-distance human connection and help.
