In this time of uncertainty, we can find ourselves struggling with anxiety, depression, and all sorts of emotions.  While slowing the spread is good, it can be hard to be cut off from our normal routine and people who support us.  This takes a toll on our mental health. There is no shame to need help because you are struggling!  Here are some support lines that you can call to find some relief!  

Community Connection Support Line from The Mental Health Association of Westchester


New York State Office of Mental Health 


NAMI Westchester (National Alliance on Mental Illness)
