Mental Health Resources
The Hope4NC Helpline (855-587-3463) connects North Carolinians to additional mental health and resilience supports that help them cope and build resilience during times of crisis. As part of the state's recent hurricane recovery efforts it served over 4,400 people in the most impacted counties, and now it is being made available to everyone in North Carolina's 100 counties during the COVID-19 crisis. This initiative is in partnership with all seven of the state's LME / MCOs and REAL Crisis Intervention Inc. in Greenville. Hope4NC is now available 24 hours per day, seven days a week to speak to a live person.
The Hope4Healers Helpline (919-226-2002) is a new initiative in partnership with the North Carolina Psychological Foundation. It provides mental health and resilience support for health care professionals, emergency medical specialists, first responders, other staff who work in healthcare settings, and their families throughout the state who are experiencing stress from being on the front lines of the state's COVID-19 response. Hope4Healers is also available 24 hours per day, seven days a week for people to reach out for support; they will be contacted quickly by a licensed mental health professional for follow-up.
