Sometimes the decision to get mental health help is delayed, not because a person fears the judgement of others, but simply because they don't know where to start.
Here in the Southcoast, Help & Hope Southcoast wants to make it easy for you.
Through the work of our partners at Southcoast Health, we have access to a robust database filled with local resources, programs, and people who want to help.
Accessible by categories and zip codes, this extensive resource includes physical and mental health services as well as transportation, housing, food and other support services.
Type in your zip code, choose health at the top of the page and then mental health in the left column to get connected. You'll be able to further narrow down your choices, including selecting information on treatment and counseling, mental health evaluations, and emergency or crisis assistance.
Don't let the unknown keep you from finding the help you need.
This region is rich with resources and skilled professionals who know what it's like to struggle and who want to help. You don't have to go it alone. Reach out here.
