Here are some additional resources if you need help managing a mental illness. There is absolutely no shame in asking for help.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (U.S.) – 1-800-273-8255
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) – 1-800-622-HELP (4357)
- NAMI has numerous local chapters. Be sure to check with your local chapter to identify additional local resources that might be available.
This list will hopefully continue to grow and evolve as new resources are found. If anyone has specific suggestions, feel free to forward them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
