Mental Health Resources
This crisis is absolutely affecting our mental health & wellbeing. From worry about our lives to our livelihood, we have all been under tremendous strain. While we may be separated from each other, it’s important to remember that we are not alone in this fight.
  • Crisis Help Line: 419-522-4357 (HELP) – This is a 24-hour crisis helpline but it is also how people can access the Catalyst services. At any time of the day they are ready to address any mental health or substance use concerns. Catalyst staff are here to help you navigate that process from the comfort of your own home.
  • The Warm Line: 419-522-5300
  • The Crisis Text Line: Text “4HOPE” to 741741.
  • Children and Family Assistance: 567-333-8455 – to help families through this crisis (staffed by Family Life Counseling and Psychiatric Services, but open to all).
There remains a lot of stigma attached to mental health, which is unfortunate, because there are many, many resources available to support people. We’re all feeling the strain of the crisis at this point in a variety of ways. Don’t be afraid to reach out. Many providers are shifting to tele-health appointments.
