I'm looking for mental health help for someone else

Mental health is a critical part of overall health. It can be hard to support someone who is having problems with his or her mental health. 

If the person you care about is in crisis, please encourage them to seek help immediately. Direct them to call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to reach a 24-hour crisis center, text MHA to 741741, call 911, or go to the nearest emergency room. You can also call these numbers if you fear for someone's safety or life.

If the person you care about is still in school, our Back To School or Life On Campus materials may better fit your needs.

The person I care about doesn't have any concerns right now, but they would like to stay mentally healthy.

The person I care about is showing symptoms of a mental health condition. They are doing okay at home, work, or school, but not as easy as before. Something is “not right.”

The person I care about is starting to have trouble with family, friends, work, school or other areas of his or her life. Things are getting worse, and sometimes multiple problems are developing.

Things are getting bad for the person I care about. He or she appears to be losing control of his or her life and ability to work, go to school, or be there for friends and family. 

The person I care about is in crisis.
