NOTE:  In life-threatening situations, telephone 911!

We heavily promote three main resources addressing crisis situations:

  • Targeting mainly teens and young adults, the Crisis Text Line is a resource for tough times via text.
  • The Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is a nationally accessible option for those in crisis.
  • Indiana’s Be Well Crisis Helpline is our state’s mental health and resource authority.

All are available 24/7, and offer free, confidential support by trained counselors.

“Be Well Crisis Helpline” – Dial 211, enter your ZIP code, press 3; or Text 211 within Indiana.

Available to Indiana Residents, this service is accessible via calling or texting.  Trained counselors answer 24/7 regarding stress, anxiety, loneliness or mental health strains. They are also increasingly a resource to help locate mental health supports within your region.  Service is free and confidential.
