We want to also remind students and families that are experiencing difficult times through our current situation that they can find emotional support through resources on our website, including Safeschool helpline, the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, as well as, the HOPE Peer Support Warmline.

The HOPE Family Health Center has created the HOPE Peer Support Warmline. It is an alternative for someone who is looking for emotional support. Here you can be listened to with compassion, empathy, hope and understanding. You can connect and feel validated with someone with similar life experiences. Their mission is to use lived experience to promote wellness and recovery in the RGV. It is available to anyone 16 and older. It is a free resource available in English and Spanish.

The Warmline is a toll free, non crisis line. The Warmline staff can also provide community resources and are open during the hours other resources may not be available.”

The Warmline contact number is 844-755-4673 (HOPE)

Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 4:00 pm- 10:00 pm

Individuals answering the phone are Certified Peer Support Specialist. All phone calls are confidential.
