During this time of pandemic, we are all under a lot of stress. Isolation, anxiety, and fear can all contribute to existing mental health conditions, or create new ones. It is normal to be feeling anxious and depressed these days. While we may be physically isolated, none of us should suffer through this time alone. If you, or someone you love, is struggling with mental health, help is available.

Mental Health Minnesota is excited to announce that there is now a toll-free phone number for people seeking support from COVID Cares, a free, anonymous, confidential phone line for anyone struggling with stress, anxiety and worry during this difficult time. It will now be easier than ever for people to get support by dialing toll-free at 833-HERE4MN.

“So many people are facing unprecedented stress and worry right now, whether you’re a healthcare worker or a hospital janitor, a teacher contemplating a return to the classroom or a parent struggling to balance work and children, a grocery store employee stocking shelves or a farmer struggling to make ends meet,” said Shannah Mulvihill, Mental Health Minnesota’s executive director.

COVID Cares is a service offered in collaboration by Mental Health Minnesota, the Minnesota Psychiatric Society, the Minnesota Psychological Association, and the Minnesota Association of Black Psychologists. The line is staffed by volunteer mental health professionals, and is open from 9AM to 9PM, seven days a week. To reach the service, call our toll-free number at 833-HERE4MN (833-437-3466).
