Mental Health Resources

TMHCA recognizes that these are unprecedented times for individuals and families as we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important to us that everyone have awareness of the resources and support available to them, and we‘ve shared various links on our homepage that you can access as needed.

If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide, please call the hotline at 1-800-273-8225 (English) or 1-888-628-9454 (Spanish). You may also chat with someone through your electronic device by visiting https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/talk-to-someone-now/.

Our list of support resources also includes dedicated information for veterans, postpartum moms and dads, and those struggling with substance use and abuse.

If the board members of TMHCA can be of assistance with providing further resources, please do not hesitate to reach out. If you are having an emergency, please call 911.
