Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

Oregon Recovery Center Hotline

Reach out.

We’re here for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Oregon Recovery Center Hotline is a free and confidential statewide resource that can connect you to harm reduction, treatment, recovery, and supportive services.


Call Now – (833) 975 – 0505
or
Use this Link For Live Chat
https://orrecoverycenterhotline.org/

Connecting you to the services you need.

When you call us or chat with us online, you’ll talk to one of our caring, trained Peer Support Specialists. We can help you decide what kind of services you need by asking you a few questions, and we can connect you to them through your local Behavioral Health Resource Network (BHRN). Learn more about the kind of services available to you

Received a fine for possession?

If you received a citation for possessing small amounts of drugs in Oregon (called a “Class E violation”), you can have the fine waived by calling the Oregon Recovery Center Hotline and completing a health assessment.

1. Call us at (833) 975-0505. Our trained Peer Support Specialists will provide a screening for substance use, mental health and other supportive service referrals you might need.

2. Once the screening is complete, we will refer you to appropriate services.

3. We will email you a letter that confirms you have completed the health assessment. Bring it to court to waive your fine.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

00 - Hotline - RAINN - Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network  - National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline  - (800) 656-4673 - 24/7 Weekdays & Weekends @ phone

 

The National Sexual Assault Hotline is available 24/7

Telephone: 800.656.HOPE (4673)

Online chat: online.rainn.org

Español: rainn.org/es

How does it work?

When you call 800.656.HOPE (4673), you’ll be routed to a local RAINN affiliate organization based on the first six digits of your phone number. Cell phone callers have the option to enter the ZIP code of their current location to more accurately locate the nearest sexual assault service provider.

Telephone Hotline Terms of Service

How can the hotline help me?

Calling the National Sexual Assault Hotline gives you access to a range of free services including:

  • Confidential support from a trained staff member
  • Support finding a local health facility that is trained to care for survivors of sexual assault and offers services like sexual assault forensic exams
  • Someone to help you talk through what happened
  • Local resources that can assist with your next steps toward healing and recovery
  • Referrals for long term support in your area
  • Information about the laws in your community
  • Basic information about medical concerns

Is it confidential?

The National Sexual Assault Hotline is a safe, confidential service. When you call the hotline, only the first six numbers of the phone number are used to route the call, and your complete phone number is never stored in our system. Most states do have laws that require local staff to contact authorities in certain situations, like if there is a child or vulnerable adult who is in danger.

While almost all callers are connected directly to a staff member or volunteer at a local sexual assault service provider, a handful of providers use an answering service after daytime business hours. This service helps manage the flow of calls. If all staff members are busy, you may choose to leave a phone number with the answering service. In this case, the number will be confidential and will be given directly to the organization’s staff member for a callback. If you reach an answering service, you can try calling back after some time has passed, or you can choose to call during regular business hours when more staff members are available. You can also access 24/7 help online by visiting online.rainn.org.

Who are the sexual assault service providers?

Sexual assault service providers are organizations or agencies dedicated to supporting survivors of sexual assault. The providers who answer calls placed to the hotline are known as RAINN affiliates. To be part of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, affiliates must agree to uphold RAINN’s confidentiality standards. That means:

  • Never releasing records or information about the call without the consent of the caller, except when obligated by law
  • Only making reports to the police or other agencies when the caller consents, unless obligated by law
  • Agreeing to RAINN’s non-discrimination policy

To learn more about how a provider can become an affiliate of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, visit the Sexual Assault Service Provider information page. Volunteer opportunities for the National Sexual Assault Hotline are coordinated through these local providers. Search for volunteer opportunities near you.

How was the National Sexual Assault Hotline created?

The National Sexual Assault Hotline was the nation’s first decentralized hotline, connecting those in need with help in their local communities. It’s made up of a network of independent sexual assault service providers, vetted by RAINN, who answer calls to a single, nationwide hotline number. Since it was first created in 1994, the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org) has helped more than 3 million people affected by sexual violence.

Before the telephone hotline was created, there was no central place where survivors could get help. Local sexual assault services providers were well equipped to handle support services, but the lack of a national hotline meant the issue did not receive as much attention as it should. In response, RAINN developed a unique national hotline system to combine all the advantages of a national organization with all the abilities and expertise of local programs. One nationwide hotline number makes it easier for survivors to be connected with the help they deserve.

Anyone affected by sexual assault, whether it happened to you or someone you care about, can find support on the National Sexual Assault Hotline. You can also visit online.rainn.org to receive support via confidential online chat.

Nuestro atento equipo de compañeros capacitados ofrece apoyo de pares confidencial y sin prejuicios todos los días. ¡No se necesitan citas! ¡Estamos aquí para usted! Nuestro objetivo es conectarnos contigo, escuchar y descubrir juntos cómo podemos dar sentido a nuestras experiencias. Entendemos que cada persona tiene una visión del mundo única. Las personas pueden ver más posibilidades para nosotros mismos cuando nos conectamos con un compañero compasivo. Los miembros de nuestro equipo de Warmline son personas que han experimentado desafíos en la vida, incluidos estados de ánimo, voces, visiones, traumas y adicciones. Sabemos lo que es sentir grandes sentimientos o encontrarnos en momentos en los que parece haber poco que esperar. No hay necesidad de pasar por esto solo… ¡Llámenos! Línea de ayuda de Oregón 1-800-698-2392

 

El apoyo intencional de pares (IPS, por sus siglas en inglés) proporciona un marco poderoso para crear relaciones en las que ambas personas aprenden y crecen juntas. IPS se utiliza en todo el mundo en entornos comunitarios, de apoyo entre pares y de servicios humanos, y es una herramienta para el desarrollo comunitario que honra las fortalezas y el valor innato de cada persona. ¿Por qué IPS? Los compañeros se reúnen en torno a experiencias compartidas y, a menudo, el deseo de cambiar vidas. Pero sin un nuevo marco sobre el cual construir, las personas con frecuencia recrean la “ayuda” en función de lo que se les hizo. IPS ofrece una base para hacer algo diferente. Nos enfocamos en construir relaciones que sean mutuas, exploratorias y conscientes del poder. No intentaremos “arreglarlo”, pero nos encantaría conectarnos con usted para escuchar, compartir y aprender con usted a medida que ambos avanzamos en nuestros viajes de vida. Nuestro apoyo de pares confidencial y sin prejuicios comienza con la premisa de que las personas han aprendido a dar sentido a sus experiencias y relaciones a partir de todo lo que han aprendido en sus vidas. Sabemos que esto ha llevado a muchas personas a sentirse indignas, desconfiadas e inherentemente defectuosas. Sin entender cómo nosotros, como individuos, hemos llegado a saber lo que sabemos sobre estar en una relación y el mundo que nos rodea, es probable que tengamos problemas, no solo con angustia emocional, sino también con una lucha continua cuando hay tensión en la relación. o en la propia comunidad.


Creemos que la crisis es una oportunidad para aprender. En una conversación mutua y respetuosa, los compañeros descubren juntos cómo han desarrollado sus creencias sobre sí mismos y el mundo en el que viven. Juntas, ayuda y crisis se redefinen y adquieren un nuevo significado. Cada persona tiene la oportunidad de desafiarse a sí misma para aprender cómo podría cambiar su historia traumática de victimización y crisis por una de bienestar mental.


No damos consejos ni intentamos “conseguir” que nadie haga nada. Estamos allí para escuchar y validar los sentimientos y experiencias de la persona que llama. Juntos tenemos una conversación en la que ambos nos volvemos más conscientes mientras aprendemos y crecemos juntos. Compartimos experiencias y conocimientos para descubrir formas en las que aprendemos nuevas formas de manejar nuestros sentimientos y descubrimos formas más sanas de relacionarnos con los demás. Una vez que un individuo tuvo que “hacer frente” a un problema, puede aprender a desafiar sus creencias con respecto a ese problema, tener una experiencia diferente de la situación y ya no tener que “hacer frente” porque el problema ya no existe. El uso de esta Oregon Warmline puede ayudar a las personas a disminuir la necesidad de visitas frecuentes al médico, tratamiento en la sala de emergencias, participación con la policía y la necesidad de cuidados más intensivos.

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!  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 led 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.


We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ anyone 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 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.

Importance of Joining a Support Group

If you’ve been diagnosed with an eye condition, have a family member who has, or have become a caregiver, joining a support group may be the most important thing you’ll ever do. Whether online or in your local community, such groups offer the opportunity to talk to others; share common concerns, frustrations, and stories; and find solutions to your vision-related difficulties. For more information on support groups, you can read Support Groups and the Adjustment Process.

Check out Finding Support Groups for more information including links to directory listings of support groups.

  • Eye2Eye is a free phone-based peer support program which offers emotional support, assessment, information, and referrals to people who are blind or visually impaired and their families.

Phone emotional peer support line for blind persons

Rutgers has launched the nation’s first peer support helpline for the legally blind and their families.

Eye2Eye – 833-932-3931 (83-EYE2EYE-1) – is staffed 24/7 by peer support specialists who are legally blind and understand the challenges callers face.

The program, which is funded by a grant from the Lavelle Fund for the Blind, serves residents in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The helpline assists people with vision impairments and blindness to work through some of the practical and emotional challenges associated with losing vision. Services include peer support, clinical assessment and referrals to resources for help with mental health, employment and technology. The program also offers callers resilience training to promote wellness, strength and self-care.

Recent studies show that one-third of people with vision loss suffer from depression and anxiety. This risk has gone largely unaddressed in the medical community, which has focused more on the practical problems faced by the visually impaired, such as finding employment and navigating everyday tasks, said Steven Silverstein, a clinical psychologist and vision researcher who co-directs the program with Cherie Castellano, the National Peer Support Call Center program director at  Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care.

The Eye2Eye peers all have different forms of visual impairments, and these began at different times during their lives. This allows for a ‘cultural connection’ between callers with a wide range of vision problems and life concerns, and our peer counselors.”

Peer Support Connection (PSC)

The Peer Support Connection Warmline of Minnesota is a safe and free way for individuals to receive confidential and anonymous one on one peer support from trained Peers, Certified Peer Support Specialists, and Recovery Coaches.

Unlike a hotline or crisis line, Warmlines provide early intervention with emotional support that can prevent a crisis from escalating.

All Peer Support Connection Warmline Staff identify as having a lived experience with a mental health and substance use challenge. This allows for empathy, understanding, support, encouragement & relatability through their mutual lived experience.

Mission

Teen Line provides support, resources, and hope to youth through a hotline of professionally trained teen counselors, and works to de-stigmatize and normalize mental health through outreach programs.

Vision

We envision a world where every young person can find hope. A world where all youth have the resources and support needed to thrive.

Who Are Our Volunteers?

Our volunteers who answer calls, texts, and emails from youth worldwide are high school students from Los Angeles, California.

Our volunteers – who we call “Listeners” – receive over 100 hours of training from mental health professionals and key partners. Training includes active listening, best practices on the different issue-areas and various identities of the young people calling in as well as role-play scenarios to anticipate the needs of the teens calling, texting, or emailing.

Oregon Recovery Center Hotline

Reach out.

We’re here for you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Oregon Recovery Center Hotline is a free and confidential statewide resource that can connect you to harm reduction, treatment, recovery, and supportive services.


Call Now – (833) 975 – 0505
or
Use this Link For Live Chat
https://orrecoverycenterhotline.org/

Connecting you to the services you need.

When you call us or chat with us online, you’ll talk to one of our caring, trained Peer Support Specialists. We can help you decide what kind of services you need by asking you a few questions, and we can connect you to them through your local Behavioral Health Resource Network (BHRN). Learn more about the kind of services available to you

Received a fine for possession?

If you received a citation for possessing small amounts of drugs in Oregon (called a “Class E violation”), you can have the fine waived by calling the Oregon Recovery Center Hotline and completing a health assessment.

1. Call us at (833) 975-0505. Our trained Peer Support Specialists will provide a screening for substance use, mental health and other supportive service referrals you might need.

2. Once the screening is complete, we will refer you to appropriate services.

3. We will email you a letter that confirms you have completed the health assessment. Bring it to court to waive your fine.

Harm reduction

Harm reduction saves lives. These services keep people who use drugs, like fentanyl or alcohol, safe by offering non-judgmental care that improves their quality of life and health, prevents and manages injury and disease, and prevents fatal overdoses. Harm reduction honors the dignity and wellbeing of each person.

Treatment

Treatment combines medical care, like supporting people through withdrawal symptoms or starting medication that helps with cravings, with services that help you learn coping skills. Treatment can happen in an inpatient or outpatient setting, and you and your treatment provider decide together what kind of treatment is right for you.

Recovery

Being in recovery means making changes over time that can help you feel better, live life on your own terms, and work toward reaching your goals. Recovery looks different for everyone and might include medication-assisted treatment, self-help or support groups, recovery coaching, or being part of recovery communities.

Supportive services

A person’s recovery is best supported when they have everything they need to live well. In addition to substance use services, services like housing support, employment assistance, and food insecurity services are also available.

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs)

Behavioral Health Resource Networks (BHRNs) are networks of organizations that provide trauma-informed, culturally specific services to people who need treatment and support for substance use concerns. The services they provide include screening for substance use disorder, substance use disorder treatment, harm reduction services, and peer support services. They also screen for health and social service needs, including housing support. Each county and Tribal area in Oregon has at least one BHRN.

When you call the hotline, only the first six numbers of the phone number are used to route the call, and your complete phone number is never stored in our system. Most states do have laws that require local staff to contact authorities in certain situations, like if there is a child or vulnerable adult who is in danger.

While almost all callers are connected directly to a staff member or volunteer at a local sexual assault service provider, a handful of providers use an answering service after daytime business hours. This service helps manage the flow of calls. If all staff members are busy, you may choose to leave a phone number with the answering service. In this case, the number will be confidential and will be given directly to the organization’s staff member for a callback. If you reach an answering service, you can try calling back after some time has passed, or you can choose to call during regular business hours when more staff members are available. You can also access 24/7 help online by visiting online.rainn.org.

Who are the sexual assault service providers?

Sexual assault service providers are organizations or agencies dedicated to supporting survivors of sexual assault. The providers who answer calls placed to the hotline are known as RAINN affiliates. To be part of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, affiliates must agree to uphold RAINN’s confidentiality standards. That means:

  • Never releasing records or information about the call without the consent of the caller, except when obligated by law
  • Only making reports to the police or other agencies when the caller consents, unless obligated by law
  • Agreeing to RAINN’s non-discrimination policy

To learn more about how a provider can become an affiliate of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, visit the Sexual Assault Service Provider information page. Volunteer opportunities for the National Sexual Assault Hotline are coordinated through these local providers. Search for volunteer opportunities near you.

How was the National Sexual Assault Hotline created?

The National Sexual Assault Hotline was the nation’s first decentralized hotline, connecting those in need with help in their local communities. It’s made up of a network of independent sexual assault service providers, vetted by RAINN, who answer calls to a single, nationwide hotline number. Since it was first created in 1994, the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org) has helped more than 3 million people affected by sexual violence.

Before the telephone hotline was created, there was no central place where survivors could get help. Local sexual assault services providers were well equipped to handle support services, but the lack of a national hotline meant the issue did not receive as much attention as it should. In response, RAINN developed a unique national hotline system to combine all the advantages of a national organization with all the abilities and expertise of local programs. One nationwide hotline number makes it easier for survivors to be connected with the help they deserve.

Anyone affected by sexual assault, whether it happened to you or someone you care about, can find support on the National Sexual Assault Hotline. You can also visit online.rainn.org to receive support via confidential online chat.

Nuestro objetivo es conectarnos contigo, escuchar y descubrir juntos cómo podemos dar sentido a nuestras experiencias. Entendemos que cada persona tiene una visión del mundo única. Las personas pueden ver más posibilidades para nosotros mismos cuando nos conectamos con un compañero compasivo. Los miembros de nuestro equipo de Warmline son personas que han experimentado desafíos en la vida, incluidos estados de ánimo, voces, visiones, traumas y adicciones.

El apoyo intencional de pares (IPS, por sus siglas en inglés) proporciona un marco poderoso para crear relaciones en las que ambas personas aprenden y crecen juntas. IPS se utiliza en todo el mundo en entornos comunitarios, de apoyo entre pares y de servicios humanos, y es una herramienta para el desarrollo comunitario que honra las fortalezas y el valor innato de cada persona. ¿Por qué IPS? Los compañeros se reúnen en torno a experiencias compartidas y, a menudo, el deseo de cambiar vidas. Pero sin un nuevo marco sobre el cual construir, las personas con frecuencia recrean la “ayuda” en función de lo que se les hizo. IPS ofrece una base para hacer algo diferente. Nos enfocamos en construir relaciones que sean mutuas, exploratorias y conscientes del poder. No intentaremos “arreglarlo”, pero nos encantaría conectarnos con usted para escuchar, compartir y aprender con usted a medida que ambos avanzamos en nuestros viajes de vida. Nuestro apoyo de pares confidencial y sin prejuicios comienza con la premisa de que las personas han aprendido a dar sentido a sus experiencias y relaciones a partir de todo lo que han aprendido en sus vidas. Sabemos que esto ha llevado a muchas personas a sentirse indignas, desconfiadas e inherentemente defectuosas. Sin entender cómo nosotros, como individuos, hemos llegado a saber lo que sabemos sobre estar en una relación y el mundo que nos rodea, es probable que tengamos problemas, no solo con angustia emocional, sino también con una lucha continua cuando hay tensión en la relación. o en la propia comunidad.


Creemos que la crisis es una oportunidad para aprender. En una conversación mutua y respetuosa, los compañeros descubren juntos cómo han desarrollado sus creencias sobre sí mismos y el mundo en el que viven. Juntas, ayuda y crisis se redefinen y adquieren un nuevo significado. Cada persona tiene la oportunidad de desafiarse a sí misma para aprender cómo podría cambiar su historia traumática de victimización y crisis por una de bienestar mental.


No damos consejos ni intentamos “conseguir” que nadie haga nada. Estamos allí para escuchar y validar los sentimientos y experiencias de la persona que llama. Juntos tenemos una conversación en la que ambos nos volvemos más conscientes mientras aprendemos y crecemos juntos. Compartimos experiencias y conocimientos para descubrir formas en las que aprendemos nuevas formas de manejar nuestros sentimientos y descubrimos formas más sanas de relacionarnos con los demás. Una vez que un individuo tuvo que “hacer frente” a un problema, puede aprender a desafiar sus creencias con respecto a ese problema, tener una experiencia diferente de la situación y ya no tener que “hacer frente” porque el problema ya no existe. El uso de esta Oregon Warmline puede ayudar a las personas a disminuir la necesidad de visitas frecuentes al médico, tratamiento en la sala de emergencias, participación con la policía y la necesidad de cuidados más intensivos.

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!  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 led 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.


We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ anyone 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 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.

Phone emotional peer support line for blind persons

Rutgers has launched the nation’s first peer support helpline for the legally blind and their families.

Eye2Eye – 833-932-3931 (83-EYE2EYE-1) – is staffed 24/7 by peer support specialists who are legally blind and understand the challenges callers face.

The program, which is funded by a grant from the Lavelle Fund for the Blind, serves residents in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The helpline assists people with vision impairments and blindness to work through some of the practical and emotional challenges associated with losing vision. Services include peer support, clinical assessment and referrals to resources for help with mental health, employment and technology. The program also offers callers resilience training to promote wellness, strength and self-care.

Recent studies show that one-third of people with vision loss suffer from depression and anxiety. This risk has gone largely unaddressed in the medical community, which has focused more on the practical problems faced by the visually impaired, such as finding employment and navigating everyday tasks, said Steven Silverstein, a clinical psychologist and vision researcher who co-directs the program with Cherie Castellano, the National Peer Support Call Center program director at  Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care.

The Eye2Eye peers all have different forms of visual impairments, and these began at different times during their lives. This allows for a ‘cultural connection’ between callers with a wide range of vision problems and life concerns, and our peer counselors.”

Steven Silverstein, clinical psychologist and vision researcher

What is a Warmline?

Peer Support Connection (PSC)

The Peer Support Connection Warmline of Minnesota is a safe and free way for individuals to receive confidential and anonymous one on one peer support from trained Peers, Certified Peer Support Specialists, and Recovery Coaches.

Unlike a hotline or crisis line, Warmlines provide early intervention with emotional support that can prevent a crisis from escalating.

All Peer Support Connection Warmline Staff identify as having a lived experience with a mental health and substance use challenge. This allows for empathy, understanding, support, encouragement & relatability through their mutual lived experience.

Ever wish you had someone to talk to? Someone who is supportive, caring and non-judgmental? Someone who is understanding and empathetic to your feelings? The Warm Line is a non-crisis toll-free line and is specifically, but not limited to, people who are coping with a mental health concern.

We are Los Angeles County’s first after-hours telephone line for individuals with mental health challenges and are staffed entirely by peers with lived experience. We are available to listen when traditional mental health services are closed.

The Warm Line supporters can also provide referrals to services or organizations that are of interest, such as healthcare facilities, mental health services, family planning agencies, shelters, self-help and support groups, and much more.

Our Warm Line was recognized as an innovative program by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH).
