Toll-free Careline available to provide emotional support for Ohioans

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) together with Governor Mike DeWine and Recovery Ohio have launched a new, toll-free Careline to provide emotional support for Ohioans who are experiencing stress, anxiety, fear, sadness and loneliness amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ohioans may call 800.720.9616 to connect with trained counselors for 24/7 support.

The Careline is staffed by credentialed counselors who have been trained to provide free, confidential support for a wide range of needs, including mental health concerns, substance use, problem gambling and more.

Individuals experiencing an acute crisis can still reach out to the Ohio Crisis Text Line (keyword 4HOPE to 741 741) or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800.273.8255).
