Need professional support?

NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness provides the following points if you are in need of professional help and support:

  • If it's an emergency in which you or someone you know is suicidal, you should immediately call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, call 911, or go to your local hospital emergency room.

  • If you can wait a few days, make an appointment with your primary healthcare provider or pediatrician if you think your condition is mild to moderate.

  • If your symptoms are moderate to severe, make an appointment with a specialized doctor such as a psychiatrist. You may need to contact your community mental health center or primary healthcare provider for a referral.

  • If you or your child is in school or at college, contact the school and ask about their support services.
