Feeling Anxious? HELP IS AVAILABLE

The Department of Human Services (DHS) today announced the launch of a statewide Support & Referral Helpline staffed by skilled and compassionate staff who will be available 24/7 to assist Pennsylvanians struggling with anxiety and other challenging emotions due to the COVID-19 emergency and refer them to community-based resources that can further help to meet individual needs.


The toll-free, round-the-clock support line is available at

1-855-284-2494. For TTY, dial 724-631-5600.


CCR staff are trained to be accessible, culturally competent, and skilled at assisting individuals with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, co-occurring disorders, and other special needs.
