Disaster Distress Helpline

SAMHSA’s Disaster Distress Helpline provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster. This toll-free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support service is available to all residents in the United States and its territories. Stress, anxiety, and other depression-like symptoms are common reactions after a disaster. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.

Counseling Services

The Disaster Distress Helpline puts people in need of counseling on the path to recovery. Our staff members provide counseling and support before, during, and after disasters and refer people to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support. Since its launch in February 2012, the Disaster Distress Helpline has provided counseling and support in response to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Ebola outbreak.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is staffed by trained counselors from a network of crisis call centers located across the United States. These counselors provide:

  • Crisis counseling for people in emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster
  • Information on how to recognize distress and its effects on individuals and families
  • Tips for healthy coping
  • Referrals to local crisis call centers for additional follow-up care and support

When you call or text, crisis counselors will listen to what’s on your mind with patience and without judgment. There is no need to give any identifying information when you contact the Disaster Distress Helpline. The counselor may ask you for some basic information at the end of the call, but these questions are optional and are intended to help SAMHSA keep track of the types of calls it receives.

Who Should Contact the Disaster Distress Helpline?

This crisis support service is for anyone experiencing emotional distress related to disasters such as:

The Disaster Distress Helpline also answers calls and texts related to infectious disease outbreaks, such as the Ebola outbreak, incidents of community unrest, and other traumatic events.

The impact of crises may affect people in different ways. Learn how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors for emotional distress related to natural and human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is open to everyone. This includes survivors of disasters; loved ones of victims; first responders; rescue, recovery, and relief workers; clergy; and parents and caregivers. You may call for yourself or on behalf of someone else.

Call or Text

From the United States and its territories, call 1-800-985-5990 to connect with a trained crisis counselor, 24/7. Spanish-speakers can call the hotline and press “2” for 24/7 bilingual support.

Callers to the hotline can also connect with counselors in over 100 other languages via 3rd-party interpretation services; to connect with a counselor in your primary language, simply indicate your preferred language to the responding counselor and she/he will connect to a live interpreter (interpretation in less commonly-spoken languages may require calling back at an appointed time). Learn more and download information about the Disaster Distress Helpline in 30 of the most commonly-spoken languages in the U.S.

To connect with a live DDH crisis counselor 24/7 via SMS, from the 50 states text “TalkWithUs” for English or “Hablanos” for Spanish to 66746. Spanish-speakers from Puerto Rico can text “Hablanos” to 1-787-339-2663.

Texting is subscription-based and only involves a few steps:

  1. Enroll in the service by texting TalkWithUs or Hablanos exactly as written. It’s important to do this before sending your first text message because otherwise the enrollment may fail, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor, or you may accidentally subscribe to another service.
  2. Look for confirmation that your subscription was successful. You will receive a Success! message if it was.
  3. To unsubscribe, text Stop or Unsubscribe to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico) at any time. For help, text Help to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico).

Standard text and data message rates will apply when texting from mobile phones. International text and data rates may apply from within U.S. territories and free association nations. SAMHSA will not sell your phone numbers to other parties.

The Disaster Distress Helpline’s TTY number 1-800-846-8517 is available 24/7 to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals, who can also utilize the texting options or their preferred Relay service (including 7-1-1) to connect with the main DDH hotline 1-800-985-5990, 24/7.

Help is free and available 24/7. Language interpreters are available.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

A Moderated Online Forum

Welcome to a place of healing & remembrance.

If you have lost a loved one to suicide,
you are not alone.

We believe no suicide loss survivor should go without support.

This moderated online forum operates like a 24/7 support group – overseen by a mental health prof. and trained team of moderators. We have more than 18,000 members and specific forums for loss type and survivor experiences.

Many support group leaders use our online forum as a supplement to their regular meetings.

Additional information:

Since 2008, the Alliance of Hope has been working to decrease stigma, increase understanding of the suicide loss experience, and provide direct support to survivors.

  • Every 40 seconds, someones dies by suicide, leaving 6-8 loved ones grieving devastating loss.
  • In the U.S., 45 million people have survived suicide loss.
  • Every day, thousands of people seek support after suicide.

Suicide loss survivors share a singular bond. Although each of our situations is unique, we tend to experience similar feelings, questions, and stages of grief. Support groups provide a good opportunity to meet others who understand and can result in deep friendships.

HTH – Hand to Hold – You are not alone! – Support for NICU Parents
Jun 25 all-day

 

Sponsor Logo

https://handtohold.org/

Sponsor Purpose Statement

 

You are not alone!

Having a baby in the NICU is life-altering. But you don’t have to do it alone. Join the Hand to Hold Community for compassionate one-on-one connection with NICU parents and Hand to Hold Family Support Specialists at any point in your unique journey.

Our Mission

Hand to Hold® provides personalized support before, during and after a NICU stay to help ensure all NICU families thrive.

What We Do

ONE TO ONE SUPPORT

Having a baby in the NICU is life-altering. But you don’t have to do it alone We’re here for you when you need us, at any stage in your journey.

Request a peer mentor today and get connected, and supported by, a trained, NICU graduate peer mentor. Hand to Hold carefully matches seasoned NICU and bereaved parents with new parents in need of support. Hand to Hold carefully matches seasoned NICU and bereaved parents with new parents in need of support. d

Hand to Hold understands that a high-risk pregnancy, a complicated birth, a NICU stay or the loss of a baby are very traumatic and isolating experiences.  Find support at any stage of your journey through our virtual support groups, podcasts, private Facebook communities and Peer Mentor Program.

Virtual support groups allow families to access support at all stages of the NICU journey, from the comfort of your own home. To learn more about our Family Support Specialists hosting the groups, visit our staff page.

If you are a professional, and not a NICU parent, we kindly ask that you please respect the privacy of the families who join our groups by not registering for, and joining, a session. Having professionals in a peer support group changes the dynamics and impact for the parents involved as observers cannot participate from a place of lived experience

p

PODCASTS
BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT

Wherever you are in your grief, we want you to know that you are not alone. There is a community of families ready to support you, whether it is today, a month from today, or a year from today.

No one understands what it’s like to suffer the loss of a baby like a parent who has been there. Hand to Hold trains and matches parents who have experienced a loss to provide peer support to bereaved families. If you have experienced a loss, you may request a Peer Mentor at any time.

Excerpt(s):

Online Meetings

Join a meeting that fits your schedule!

Click on “Join Zoom Meeting” to launch the meeting.

Feel free to be on camera or not for these meetings.

** Attendees: Please observe the same meeting etiquette as you would in face-to-face meetings. Here are tips:

  1. Mute yourself when not speaking unless the Host calls you to all un-mute.

  2. Zoom has a “Raise Hand” feature to support sharing (see below) or send a private chat to the leader to share.

  3. The Host is allowed to disable the chat feature if there is too much cross talk.

  4. If you are concerned about anonymity, feel free to change your name by clicking on the ellipses (…) in the window of your personal image/icon.  Select “Rename” to do this.

  5. You can also turn off your camera for anonymity.

  6. Some hosts join early or stay after for community time.  Join in if yours does!

    To raise your hand in a Zoom meeting, click the “Raise Hand” icon on the bottom left of the Zoom window. When you click the Raise Hand icon, a hand icon will appear next to your name that will notify the host your hand is raised. You will also see the hand icon turn green. When you want to lower your hand, you can click the hand icon again and your hand will be lowered. If the raise hand feature is disabled you will not see the option to raise your hand.

Don’t forget about time zone changes… 11 am EST/10 am CST/9 am MST/ 8 am PST.

About Master JianFeng

Master JianFeng Chen is from the Fujian province of China. Inspired by his teachers and experiences, he wanted to bring traditional training of internal/external martial arts to the people of America. In China, martial arts is deeply imbedded in everyday life. Energy work, through Qigong and Tai Chi are often not stressed enough, so the full benefits of practice are not realized. His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi. His teachers were Grand Masters and World Champions in Tai Chi and Wushu.

Excerpt(s):

Our mission at Mindspace is to inspire well-being with the transformative potential of science, wisdom, and human connection.

We believe well-being is a skill that can be learned, and that it can scale from the individual, to families, communities, and organizations of all shapes and sizes. We believe that everyone can benefit from some form of mind training, but that doesn’t mean there’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Well-being at Mindspace is about connecting with people where they are and supporting the development of skills for building a sustainable, meaningful life—at home, at work, and in the world.

OSPO – Oregon Senior Peer Outreach by Telephone for Older Adults / Seniors – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jun 25 all-day

 

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

RECOVERY DHARMA ONLINE

We are a group of Recovery Dharma Members who use technology to meet up with each other from around the world. We make an effort to stay in contact with each other between meetings to form Spiritual Friendships.

We get together online for meetings, workshops, and inter-sangha business. Some of us stay around after the closing to hangout in the Virtual Parking Lot for fellowship. For some of us, this is our primary recovery community. For others, it supplements the meetings available to us locally.

Recovery Dharma Online organizes daily meetings accessible via computer, smartphone, or dial-in. Together we meditate, study Buddhist teachings, and support each other on our paths to sobriety and peace.

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 @ Telephone
Jun 25 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.

  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

According to the Center for Hope and Recovery, “A warmline is a telephone service (aka a call line) for people who are looking for someone to discuss their daily struggles. Warmlines are staffed with peers who have lived experience of mental health struggles themselves and who are open to sharing their stories of challenging situations, recovery, and perseverance”  The hours, days and geographic reach may vary.  Fortunately, there are many warmlines including quite a number operating in Oregon such as but not limited to: The David Romprey Warmline.

Article regarding Peer Warmlines

Sustaining Recovery through the Night:
Impact of a Peer-Run Warm Line

by Rebecca Spirito Dalgin, Simonne Maline, and Peter Driscoll

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/21768081/

Excerpt(s):

Objective: This exploratory study describes the impact of a peer-run warm line on the lives of individuals with psychiatric disabilities.

Methods: Phone surveys were completed with 480 warm line callers over four years. Results: Warm line callers reported a reduction in the use of crisis services and a reduction of feelings of isolation.

Conclusions and Implications for Practice: The results indicate that peer-run warm lines can fill an important void in the lives of individuals living with mental [health challenges]. Although warm lines at any time of day are helpful, keeping warm lines running after 5pm and throughout the night provides support services not typically available after office hours and can assist with loneliness, symptom management, and the process of recovery.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

Also, there is the Senior Peer Outreach Program

Excerpt(s):

Victory Tips is a peer-support outreach ministry – it is ordinary people with compassion and commitment to share what they have learned to help others get healed emotionally. Since 2004, Victory Tips has been using the truths in God’s Word to help people find victory over their life’s challenges. We live in an age where the problems of discouragement, anxiety, and depression, have come to the forefront of people’s attention. Jesus did tell us we would have problems in our lives, He said in John 16:33, “In the world, you shall have tribulation.” But then He said, “Be of good cheer.” This tells us that it is possible to have problems in our lives and still feel hopeful, optimistic, and even cheerful. We can because God has given who us His Word. We can use it as a weapon against the darkness that tries to hinder our happiness.  Jesus, Himself, was not immune to Satan’s attempts to derail His life, and He shows us how to disarm Satan when he tries to disturb our peace and happiness. That’s what this book is all about. It lays out the tools in God’s Word that we can use to liberate ourselves so that we live the best life possible – a life of Victory!

The primary purpose of this book is to engage people in group discussions about their life’s challenges, and how to overcome them. After someone’s life has been healed, they are then given the opportunity to use this program to help others who are having difficulties in their life. We encourage healed individuals to team up with others and commit to leading a weekly recovery group of their own. It can be held in their home, a church, or some other public venue. It can also be held by way of a conference call. A group leader’s life will become so much richer for doing so. They will be helping people to see that what Jesus said in John 10:10 is true. He said, “I am come that they might have Life and that they might have it more abundantly.” Together we can show everyone how they can live a life free anxiety and depression.

When someone comes to us for help, we take it very seriously. As a peer-led group, we know what it is like to have chronic psychiatric issues. We know the effect they can have on family and friends. We also know how they can impact a career. So when someone comes to us for help, we reach out with empathy and dignity. We do our best to provide daily telephone support. We share Bible truths that have helped us in our own recoveries, and we pray for people. In addition, we help people find personal support right where they live. With everyone working together, we begin to see a brand new person emerge from the pain that once held them down. In the end, lives are changed, the Gospel is proven, and Christ is glorified. We welcome you to inquire how your life, or a friend’s life, can be helped by this Bible-based ministry. Contact us today.

The culturally specific workgroup, led by a lead consultant, reviewed existing PWS
training slides and materials and provided feedback on necessary changes to ensure it
was culturally responsive. After all the materials had been reviewed and updated,
we contracted with another consultant to complete a peer review of the full training.
That consultant worked alongside the lead consultant to discuss their recommended
changes and feedback. The lead consultant then incorporated that feedback into the
Peer Wellness Specialist training. Administrative support was provided by MHAAO
throughout the process.
Through funding support from Multnomah County, the Afrocentric PWS will be
launching in June, with full scholarships available for Multnomah County residents!

About fees:   

Many of us are on fixed incomes and unable to pay fees at this time – please come anyway! If you can pay a fee, know that it makes a difference and helps us cover our costs. The break-even fee (what it costs us to provide the service) is $10 per person and our system allows for a sliding scale. If you are going to pay a fee, please pay the amount (more or less) depending on your life circumstances.

 

If you are able to pay a fee, please go to:

Using Zoom:  

  1. If you’ve never used Zoom on your device, clicking on the link will take you to a download page for the app you’ll need to install. Once you do that it should be a one-step process each time afterwards. Sometimes I have to click on the link twice to help it see I actually DO have the app installed. Feel free to do it ahead of time when you have a minute to play with it.  
  2. Once you get in to zoom via the link, you’ll be in a waiting room. One of the group facilitators will let you in to the main room.  
  3. It’s fine to use a phone and the dial in number to call in to the group, but using the phone (for audio) and a computer (for video) at the same time can be buggy. Let us know if you’ll be needing to do that though, so we can plan well.  
  4. We will NOT be recording the group and no one else will have the ability to either.

  

Again, please do not hesitate to come because of your financial situation – your presence in the group is priceless and we want you here!

Excerpt(s) from

Disaster Distress Helpline

SAMHSA’s Disaster Distress Helpline provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to people experiencing emotional distress related to natural or human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline, 1-800-985-5990, is a 24/7, 365-day-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster. This toll-free, multilingual, and confidential crisis support service is available to all residents in the United States and its territories. Stress, anxiety, and other depression-like symptoms are common reactions after a disaster. Call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.

Counseling Services

The Disaster Distress Helpline puts people in need of counseling on the path to recovery. Our staff members provide counseling and support before, during, and after disasters and refer people to local disaster-related resources for follow-up care and support. Since its launch in February 2012, the Disaster Distress Helpline has provided counseling and support in response to disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Ebola outbreak.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is staffed by trained counselors from a network of crisis call centers located across the United States. These counselors provide:

  • Crisis counseling for people in emotional distress related to any natural or human-caused disaster
  • Information on how to recognize distress and its effects on individuals and families
  • Tips for healthy coping
  • Referrals to local crisis call centers for additional follow-up care and support

When you call or text, crisis counselors will listen to what’s on your mind with patience and without judgment. There is no need to give any identifying information when you contact the Disaster Distress Helpline. The counselor may ask you for some basic information at the end of the call, but these questions are optional and are intended to help SAMHSA keep track of the types of calls it receives.

Who Should Contact the Disaster Distress Helpline?

This crisis support service is for anyone experiencing emotional distress related to disasters such as:

The Disaster Distress Helpline also answers calls and texts related to infectious disease outbreaks, such as the Ebola outbreak, incidents of community unrest, and other traumatic events.

The impact of crises may affect people in different ways. Learn how to recognize the warning signs and risk factors for emotional distress related to natural and human-caused disasters.

The Disaster Distress Helpline is open to everyone. This includes survivors of disasters; loved ones of victims; first responders; rescue, recovery, and relief workers; clergy; and parents and caregivers. You may call for yourself or on behalf of someone else.

Call or Text

From the United States and its territories, call 1-800-985-5990 to connect with a trained crisis counselor, 24/7. Spanish-speakers can call the hotline and press “2” for 24/7 bilingual support.

Callers to the hotline can also connect with counselors in over 100 other languages via 3rd-party interpretation services; to connect with a counselor in your primary language, simply indicate your preferred language to the responding counselor and she/he will connect to a live interpreter (interpretation in less commonly-spoken languages may require calling back at an appointed time). Learn more and download information about the Disaster Distress Helpline in 30 of the most commonly-spoken languages in the U.S.

To connect with a live DDH crisis counselor 24/7 via SMS, from the 50 states text “TalkWithUs” for English or “Hablanos” for Spanish to 66746. Spanish-speakers from Puerto Rico can text “Hablanos” to 1-787-339-2663.

Texting is subscription-based and only involves a few steps:

  1. Enroll in the service by texting TalkWithUs or Hablanos exactly as written. It’s important to do this before sending your first text message because otherwise the enrollment may fail, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor, or you may accidentally subscribe to another service.
  2. Look for confirmation that your subscription was successful. You will receive a Success! message if it was.
  3. To unsubscribe, text Stop or Unsubscribe to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico) at any time. For help, text Help to 66746 (or 1-787-339-2663 from Puerto Rico).

Standard text and data message rates will apply when texting from mobile phones. International text and data rates may apply from within U.S. territories and free association nations. SAMHSA will not sell your phone numbers to other parties.

The Disaster Distress Helpline’s TTY number 1-800-846-8517 is available 24/7 to Deaf and hard of hearing individuals, who can also utilize the texting options or their preferred Relay service (including 7-1-1) to connect with the main DDH hotline 1-800-985-5990, 24/7.

Help is free and available 24/7. Language interpreters are available.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.
